December 31, 2018. A total of 5,850 gallons of water was distributed to families in Baseco for the year 2018. We never expected that 2018 will be that awesome!
Our journey started when we got the knowledge that millions of Filipinos still do not have access to clean water and that children suffer diarrhea even leading to death because of this.
We believe that if more people will just know, a lot will come and help.
On April 28, 2018, we started pitching to friends and interested individuals about Baseco and that 10 gallons of clean water for a family would only cost Php50. That month, we were supporting 3 families only but because of your immense support we ended 2018 by helping out 30 families - 170 total household members, 75 children (5 years old and below). When the intervention started, no diarrhea has been reported to the beneficiaries.
April 2019. Cent To Change achieves another milestone of distributing 10,050 gallons of water to 30 family partners-in-progress at Baseco, Tondo. This happened as we celebrate the first year of Cent To Change.
If you are an avid drinker of soda or water bottles, this is equivalent to 38,000 liters of soda/water bottles distributed.
We are able to do this with the collective efforts from the community volunteers and partner donors.
Together, let us make a difference! Your change truly can make a difference!
