Quezon Board Member Dominic Reyes vows to make life better for waterless people

Apr 6, 2019 @ 11:57

Quezon Board Member Dominic Reyes has seen for himself how much of a burden the lack of a regular water supply could be.

During a recent sortie in Sitio Calwit, Reyes said he met Mary Grace, a young girl who had to take her pedicab and pedal 300 meters to get water.

He said in a Facebook post that when he first saw Mary Grace, he thought she was going to school. But he met her coming back and found her covered in sweat. He then learned that she had to fetch water for her needs from a place that is quite a distance from her home.

This showed the suffering that people in Mary Grace’s sitio have been enduring because of a lack of water connections, he said.

This has to change, and he will change this should he be elected in May.

Will the sitio enjoy a regular water supply soon?

“KISAPMATA ✊

Kilusan sa Pagbabago ng mga Mamamayan tungo sa Tagumpay

Nagsimula kami sa sampu, natapos kami sa halos isang daan. Ito ang totoong kilusan na nakuha sa isang KISAPMATA! 💙

Nakilala ko kanina ang dalagang si Mary Grace kanina habang nagsisimula pa lang kaming maglakad at parang nag gagayak siya ng kanyang bisekletang may sidecar. Hindi ko siya halos napansin nung una sapagkat akala ko ay papasok pa lang siya ng paaralan. Pabalik na kami galing sa kabilang dulo ng Calwit nung abutan ko ulit siya pabalik ng kanilang tahanan na pawis sa kanyang padyak at may mga timbang tila ay bagong igib. Tinigilan namin siya at tinanong kung saan pa siya nagtabo ng kanyang mga timba, kamo niya ay malapit pa sa simbahan kung saan halos 300m ang layo nito sa kanilang bahay.

Ito ang pasakit sa sitio niya na ininda nila sa mahabang panahon. At ngayon, panahon na para baguhin natin ito.

38 days to go 🕛

Para sa pagasa

Para sa pagbabago

Para sa San Narciso! ✊,” Reyes posted.
