National Water Resources Board (NWRB) Executive Director Dr. Sevillo D. David Jr. showed support on the formal launching of the advocacy campaign for the responsible use of water dubbed as “Oplan Tubig Para sa Kinabukasan- Makibalita, Maghanda, Magkaisa”, held at the MMDA Auditorium, Guadalupe, Makati City.

The advocacy aims to encourage the public especially those residing in Metro Manila, Rizal, Cavite and Bulacan on the responsible use of water, rain or shine. Campaign videos were presented, and the official Facebook page was launched. Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and the Metro Manila Council (MMC) lead the campaign supported by the NWRB, Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS), Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), and water concessionaires Manila Water Company and Maynilad.

In his speech, Dr. David cited the relevance of the campaign’s 3 M’s to NWRB, namely, Makibalita, Maghanda at Magkaisa.

Makibalita- to encourage the public that we must share news or information concerning water and each one of us has to be involved.

Maghanda - to be prepared at all times in cases of water shortage and other crisis that may come; and

Magkaisa – the NWRB appeals to the public’s full cooperation in the campaign to be able to secure a sufficient, safe and sustainable water for all.

“Kung may isang magpabaya lahat tayo ay maapektuhan. Kung ang bawat isa ay nagmalasakit lahat tayo ay makikinabang” are valuable words mentioned by MMDA Chairperson Danilo Lim reminding everyone that we should take by heart the importance of water in our everyday lives.
