Five schools and one construction site in Ifugao were provided with portable handwashing stations through the partnership of renewable energy provider SN Aboitiz Power-Magat (SNAP-Magat) and the Philippine Red Cross (PRC)-Ifugao.

The handwashing stations made out of drums converted into a lavatory dubbed as “drumvatory” is an innovation project launched by the PRC nationwide.

The campaign aims to support the nation’s fight to contain the spread of the Covid-19 by partnering with donors who are committed to the same advocacy on safety awareness.

Beneficiaries of the partnership include Good News Christian School Academy in Banaue, Abatan Elementary School in Hungduan, Don Bosco High School in Lagawe, Magulon Elementary School in Lamut, and Saki Construction in Kiangan, all in Ifugao. 

PRC-Ifugao Head Chery Mae Barrio expressed gratitude to SNAP for helping them promote personal hygiene and sanitation in the community.

Safety is one of SNAP’s core values of operation. SNAP supports initiatives that promote sustainable safety practices.

SNAP-Magat is a joint venture of SN Power of Norway and AboitizPower. It owns and operates the 360- to 388-MW Magat hydro on the border of Isabela and Ifugao and the 8.5-MW Maris hydro in Isabela. – Press release
