Comfort room donation

MAITUM, Sarangani (February 5, 2009) – American missionary Dan Evans (right) turns over keys of the donated comfort room (CR) to head teacher Aura Mirayo of Kipalkuda Elementary School. The new CR will provide greater sanitation and hygiene for the school property, students, and teachers. The school with 350 students in grades 1-6 is located in barangay New La Union. The construction project was initiated and funded by the Datu Wali Mission of Maitum, with planning assistance by the Maitum municipal engineering department, and hands-on supervision by engineer Gilbert Rocapor. Datu Wali Mission directors, Dan and Aurea Evans, who sponsor other programs to assist the children of Kipalkuda school, raised funds among their foundation supporters in the U.S. for the project. The CR follows a standard Unicef design, with all concrete walls and floor, and a dedicated septic tank. The original design was expanded to include two stalls in the female side of the CR, and a stall and urinal in the male section. Fresh water for flushing is supplied by a spring, and an outdoor faucet was incorporated for hand washing. (Photo courtesy of Datu Wali
