Banag-Banag Ends Drought For Small Town

June 6th, 2010 · No Comments

Banag Banag, Inc is a regional club that focusses on addressing basic human needs like food, shelter, clean water and education. Such things are considered a luxury in remote areas of the Philippines.  Neither do these scanty towns have the basic facilities such as clean water. 

Banag Banag has taken the initiative to provide clean water to remote towns with their “Deep Well” project – that is building of “posos” in remote areas.

The town of Catmon, located 57 kilometres from Cebu City is the first recipient of the “Poso Project.”  It is considered a 5th class municipality with a population of 27, 330 people (as per 2007 census).  Right here too in this town, in Barangay Cambangkaya,  stands Cebu’s second highest mountain peak, Mt. Tore.

Further sites in the islands of Bohol and Leyte are currently being identified for Project Poso.  Banag-Banag aims to continue to raise awareness for the underprivileged and disadvantaged.

In the past, Banag Banag has embarked on humanitarian and charitable projects like: food relief to the storm ravaged town of Pavia, Iloilo; housing for people of Inayawan, the garbage dump of Cebu; and also provides technical education scholarships for four disadvantaged youths residing in Cebu.


“Donations will come a long way into building the next “poso” and providing clean drinking water for the next town. Your donation will be greatly appreciated,” said a spokesperson for the group.
