Earth Talks with Media Practitioners for Region 4A
Earth Day Network Philippines (EDNP) President Bert Guevara was the guest speaker at Do It Right advocacy (DIR) project last April 24, 2012 which started at 1:30pm to 4:00pm at the Philippine Information Agency Regional Office at Barangay Halang, Calamba City.
Every April 22 yearly, the Philippines is celebrating Earth Day and the main partner of the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources ( DENR) for the activities is EDNP. "Coca Cola Bottlers International gave millions of pesos for the Ram Pump project which we need 100 beneficiaries. It's worth 1.2 million per beneficiary and were still accepting application. Secretary Paje saw the project and gave us 50 more ram pump projects to be given away." Guevara said.
According to Guevara, Since Rum pumps can only be used in situations where falling water is available, their use is restricted to three main applications: lifting drinking water from springs to settlements on higher ground, pumping drinking water from streams that have significant slope, lifting irrigation water from streams or raised irrigation channels. Ram Pump Advantages include: Inexpensive Very simple construction and easy to install yourself. Does not consume petrol, diesel or electricity. Minimum maintenance. Pollution free. Quiet pumping 24 hours per day.
