First it was Pondong Batangan (the forerunner of Pondo ng Pinoy), then came Botikang Batangan.

Now, the Archdiocese of Lipa has Tubig Batangan, a water purifying station put up through the initiative of the Lipa Archdiocesan Social Action Commission (LASAC).

Archbishop Ramon C. Arguelles, who blessed the office where Tubig Batangan’s distilling and purifying machines are located, lauded the project as this would benefit the poor of the Archdiocese.

LASAC Project Director Louie Casala said the initial funding of the project came from a long-time benefactor, a Filipino doctor from the Parish of St. Mary Magdalene, Bayanan, San Pascual, Batangas, who is currently residing in the United States.

The donor, who requested anonymity, has helped a deserving student finished college through a scholarship grant but wanted to continue his donation to LASAC.

He gave an initial funding to this project, the proceeds of which would partly go to the Commission’s scholarship program and partly to cancer patients under the care of Cancer Warrior’s Foundation (Batangas chapter).

Under the agreement, CWF will take care of the promotions and delivery while LASAC will take care of production and monitoring of the project.

Several children stricken with cancer and under the care of CWF, together with their parents, were present during the inauguration and blessing. (Fr. Nonie Dolor)

    Ako po si Diana Landicho tubig batangan po ang iniinon namin pati ang 2 kong anak, minsan nakabili ako at tatanggalin ko ang seal sa my gripo..ang dumi ng gripo!! My mga picture ako as katunayan. Nag aalinlangan tuloy ako ngayon kung malinis ang tubig ng tubig batangan, kalusugan ng mga anak ko ang inalala ko.
