The new water station will provide high quality yet affordable drinking water to the residents of Caloocan's Barangay 88, as well as an additional source of income for potential water dealers and delivery workers. The station was built in partnership with Waterhope, a social enterprise which provides affordable safe drinking water to communities where access to this basic human need is challenged.
Also present was Ms. Viel Aquino Dee, sister of President Noynoy Aquino. Like her late mother, former president Corazon Aquino, Ms.Dee is a active and staunch supporter of micro finance efforts and other projects for the poor in the Philippines. She is currently the vice chair/treasurer of the Assisi Development Foundation.
A five-gallon container of water from a Waterhope station dealer costs P25.00, P5.00 – P15.00 pesos lower than the same amount from other water suppliers.
CCT has two other Waterhope stations, one in Pasay City, and another in Quezon City.
