Manila Water Foundation (MWF) and Procter & Gamble Philippines (P&G) formalized its partnership through the signing of a memorandum of agreement (MOA) worth almost a million pesos to construct hygiene facilities and conduct hygiene education sessions in public schools nationwide.
Under the MOA, these facilities are to be constructed in twelve public schools from Luzon to Mindanao. P&G’s Safeguard brand will provide soap and conduct hygiene teaching activities in Taguig City, Cebu, Zamboanga City, and Davao del Norte. This effort will be merged with MWF’s Health in Our Hands (HiOH) program, a hygiene education campaign.
Signatories of the MOA are MWF Executive Director Reginald Andal, Manila Water Taguig - Pateros Area Business Manager Diana Buenaventura-Gomez, P&G Corporate Communications Head Anna Legarda-Locsin and P&G Corporate Communications Manager Charm Banzuelo.
This partnership will support MWF's Lingap program, which provides hygiene and drinking facilities in public institutions such as schools and health centers to ensure access to clean water for hygiene activities.
