Rapid Assessment Report - 28 Nov 13 - ORMOC OCHA

Subject/Objective: 
Methodology: 
Key findings: 
Spring water is the primary water source for barangays. 3 of the assessed 9 barangays have lost their water systems and are walking 16km to carry water by cans daily. Few reported boiling water and several barangays reported pediatric diarrhea that is likely the result of water contamination. The 80% loss of toilet facilities and open defecation create significant concerns that more unprotected water sources will become contaminated in the near future. Women and children shared significant concern/stigma associated with open defecation and bathing. No hygiene kits or sanitation kits of any type were seen or reported as available in any of the municipalities or barangays assessed over 5 days.
