MANILA, Philippines—Members of a volunteer group based in California have completed water projects in a village in Calamba City, Laguna province, in their continuing search for projects to reduce, if not eliminate, waterborne diseases in the world.

The group Got Agua? completed piping systems connecting two wells that are the sources of potable water of the people of Barangay Halang in Calamba.
