Water Problem


A Dulangan Manobo man and his daughter wash themselves of forest trail mud on Monday (25 August 2014) in Sitio Tudog, Barangay Bugso in Sen. Ninoy Aquino, Sultan Kudarat. One of Tudog’s biggest problems is the difficult access to water. While local springs such as this exist, the water flow is weak and the potability is suspect. A rich water source is available in the sitio’s outer edge but the cost of a water system to bridge the distance is so far an insurmountable obstacle. MindaNews photo by BJ Patiño
