RTN donates diesel engine to Bataraza residents

“Tubig ang pangunahing pangangailangan ng tao. Nakikita namin na nahihirapan sila sa tuwing kailangan nila ng tubig, pahirapan pa sila sa jetmatic pump. Parang ang laking ginhawa sa kanila kasi madali at hindi na pahirapan ang pagkuha nila ng tubig,” he said.

Over 200 households in at Sitio Mangres, Barangay Ocayan, Bataraza are expected to benefit from an 8 horsepower diesel engine and 3-kilovolt ampere (kVa) dynamo recently turned over by Rio Tuba Nickel to bring them water supply.

Rio Tuba Nickel community organizer Melissa Didik said they turned over the tool on November 27 to the community from their Social Development and Management Program (SDMP) to help provide water to the families whose supply is still not steady.

“Tubig ang pangunahing pangangailangan ng tao. Nakikita namin na nahihirapan sila sa tuwing kailangan nila ng tubig, pahirapan pa sila sa jetmatic pump. Parang ang laking ginhawa sa kanila kasi madali at hindi na pahirapan ang pagkuha nila ng tubig,” he said.

Didik said the diesel engine has a budget of P44,200 allocated from their 2019 SDMP.

She added that the company aims to help the residents by giving them access to water.

“Isa din sa hangarin ng RTN na magkaroon ng maginhawang buhay ang bawat pamilyang nahihirapan sa pamamagitan ng programang SDMP. Kahit na sa simpleng tulong mula sa company ay maipaparating natin na may pakialam tayo sa kanilang pangangailang sa pang-araw-araw,” she said.
