Summary

The small community of Mabini is located in a remote part of the Visayas region with little access to basic services. Regular clashes between the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the New People's Army hamper development and force civilians to flee their homes and seek shelter elsewhere. Drinking water poses a problem. The only source is located two and a half kilometres away. ICRC engineers have begun to extract water from a nearby spring, to help both residents and the displaced.
