About Event

The Ipo Watershed is a vital link in the Angat-Umiray-Ipo watersheds system which supplies around 96% of the water needs of Metro Manila. The protection of this area is crucial in ensuring water security for us and for future generations of Filipinos – and for this we have the partner Dumagats of the watershed to thank.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has taken the world by storm, and its effects have been felt by the entire Philippines. Although there are no reported cases of the disease in the community, the pandemic - and the lockdowns that have followed in order to curb the spread of COVID-19 - has affected the livelihoods of the partner Dumagats of the Ipo Watershed, with most of them serving as the environmental frontliner of the area. Our partner Dumagats are in-charge of patrolling the 6,600 hectares of forest land that surrounds the area. Despite the lockdowns, the partner Dumagats continue to patrol in order to protect our forests.  

Now more than ever, the partner Dumagats of the Ipo Watershed need our help. Your generosity will go a long way in supporting our environmental frontliners in Bulacan during these challenging times. Your contribution will help us provide food assistance to 209 families and give them new, proper equipment that they would need to continue protecting the forest. 

Together, let’s feed our partner Dumagats and their families, people who continue to #ChangeTheEnding every day for us and for the planet, with the work that they do to safeguard our water source.
