Waterless Metro Manila
You read it right. We are waterless! The Philippines is currently experiencing the El Niño phenomenon. Because of this, the water level in different dams has reached the critical point. According to news reports, hundreds of barangays in Metro Manila are experiencing water shortage.
In our area alone, there’s no water supply. We can only get water in between 1 and 3 in the morning. After that, nothing. We have a water pump and it’s a big help because without it, I don’t think we can even fill a pail. Even in between 1 and 3 in the morning, the water trickling from the faucet is very minimal.
It’s a big hassle. We have water drums that we fill whenever we can get water supply. But because there’s 7 of us in the house, the reserve water is not enough throughout the day. I am really praying for rain to fall. My reasons are these: to increase water supply and to alleviate the heat! Join me in praying for rain?
