Poof! And there goes your dump after flushing the toilet. If you think that it is the end of the stinky story of anyone’s deposit inside the bathroom, for the people of the Manila Water, it is only the beginning of their filthy, but extraordinary quest of making the water sanitary again.

Lakbayan 2017

Wondering what happens and where the used water in your place goes? The squad of the National Conciliation and Mediation Board went on an educational tour at Manila Waters Inc. last November 7 and 8, 2017 to find out and search for answers through their Lakbayan Program, as part of the Board’s Green Our Dole Program. Located at Balara, Quezon City, Manila Water Company, Inc., owned by Ayala Corporation, is a concessionaire of Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System, or MWSS, in supplying water services in the east zone of Metro Manila. They are responsible mainly for making the water squeaky clean again ready for inhabitation of marine creatures, and even for human consumption.

Through dynamic visual presentations, amusing and informative games, as well as eye-opening and enlightening tour on how grimy water is treated to become sanitary, the NCMB squad was elucidated on the process and various stages where used water embark on before reaching the rivers of Metro Manila. It is a gloomy realization that people are unfortunately not taking their responsibility in safeguarding the environment. During the discussion on the meticulous water cycle treatment process, the NCMB employees were enlightened on the need to be reminded once more that everyone is responsible for clean water to be still available at present and in the future. Each and every one of us has a role to do, no matter how small it is, or we could always leave the dirty work to Manila Water.

The NCMB squad ended their adventure taking with them answers to their queries concerning water cycle process. Filled and fulfilled, the squad seized the time off to take a glimpse on the everyday job of the people from Manila Water. Though the work is grubby and regularly pervaded with putrid matters and foul odour, the vision and mission of the company persist to be pure and sparkling in providing clean water for the public. Treating the water to become clean again after flushing it in the toilet is a tough job which makes us lucky to have these trained professionals to perform the nasty labour for us.

With this mind-blowing experience and newly acquired understanding, the Board’s Green Our Dole Program is another success to be revelled.

2017 18-Day Campaign To End Violence Against Women

Campaign Background
The 18-Day Campaign to End Violence Against Women (VAW) is observed annually from November 25 to December 12 to raise awareness among all stakeholders that VAW is a public issue of national concern. It supports the Philippine Government’s goal to protect the human rights of women and its commitment to address all forms of VAW. The following issuances provide the national legal mandates for the annual campaign:
  • Proclamation 1172 s. 2006 – Declaring 25 November to 12 December as the 18-Day Campaign to End Violence Against Women (VAW)
  • Republic Act 10398 (2013) – Declaring November 25 of Every Year as National Consciousness Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Children
In Support of the Worldwide Campaign to End VAW
The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence begun in 1991, linking November 25 (International Day Against VAW) and December 10 (International Human Rights Day) to emphasize that VAW is a human rights violation. It is further strengthened with the launching in 2008 of the United Nations (UN) Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End VAW Campaign which envisions a world free from all forms of violence against women and girls. For the UN, this vision can only be realized through meaningful actions and ongoing political commitments of national governments, backed by adequate resources.
