Health facilities including birthing clinics are limited in this region with malnutrition and sickness impeding peoples ability to work, learn and develop a healthy physical body.
In partnership with all levels of government it is planned to extend health education to surrounding villages to assist communities in preventative measures to avoid sickness and disease. Noble Endeavours co-ordinates regular medical and dental missions in Datu Sundungan and this program will be extended to include other regions.
The first filtration unit donated by the SkyJuice Foundation sits at the centre of the Datu Sundungan project and is capable of producing 10,000 litres of fresh water every day.
Further purification plants will be placed in many isolated areas where poor water quality has disastrous effects on the general health of the children and the community. Providing clean water will help relieve poverty, encourage hope and bring dignity to those in most need of a Noble Endeavours sustainable community. Water purification will be the prelude to initiating further sustainable projects throughout the Mindano region.
In partnership with all levels of government Noble Endeavours will assist in the establishment of a permanent birthing and medical clinic to be located on the ground floor of the community centre.

“Safe, affordable drinking water is the key to progress in developing countries and an essential component of any poverty reduction and sustainable development strategy. Without clean water all other programs such as education and health fail to maximise their benefits to the communities.”
