Water is life and clean water means health!


The critical importance of unrestricted access to clean drinking water and basic sanitation for all is highlighted in Sustainable Development Goal 6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. SDG 6 aims to achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all by 2030 and support local engagement in water and sanitation management.


Therefore, we would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to @RipplAffect for partnering with Project Propel in distributing Sawyer household water filtration systems in Metro Manila and in the Bicol region. This initiative was also made possible through partnerships and coordination with the barangay captains, kagawads, officials, councils, and community members.


Thank you so much to RipplAffect and the donors who have supported this initiative! Together we can start a ripple to create a tide of change for humankind!

The perils of Typhoon Odette highlighted a major issue commonly overlooked today: poor access to sanitary products and its effect on plastic pollution. A total of 376,719 persons were pre-emptively evacuated to 2,861 evacuation centers in the aftermath of Typhoon Odette. Half of them were women and girls who needed to be supplied with menstrual hygiene products.


Did you know: Sanitary pads rank fifth on the list of ocean plastic litter? To address this concern, the EcoWings PH livelihood team prepared hundreds of EcoWings and EcoLiners washable pads for those affected by Typhoon Odette. The preparation included pre-washing and packaging, so that they were ready to be used in the evacuation centers.


Thank you to everyone who helped prepare EcoWings washable menstrual kits, to those who donated detergent, and to Save the Children Philippines for coordinating the distribution! Project Propel's Program Manager, Ms. May Baez was also invited to the Save the Children's Partners Meeting on August 19, 2022 in Pasay, Metro Manila where all partners, donors were given special recognition for their respective contributions.


Project Propel has embarked on an important advocacy for the environment and reproductive health by promoting REUSABLE EcoWings and EcoLiners



Together we can do more for the health of our communities and for our planet!

Thanks to all who helped prepare the space for a new EcoGarden in Barangay Cembo, Makati! Zone leaders in the barangay and volunteers from the University of Makati joined Project Propel in clearing the area of clutter and debris and priming the wall for painting the health mural!
