THE Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (Barmm) is set to deliver the first three sets of desalination machines worth P20 million each to three island towns in the province of Sulu to address the crisis of drinking water in the three municipalities.

The identified recipients of the desalination machines are the island municipalities of Pata, Pandami, and Hadji Panglima Tahil.

Barmm Chief Minister Ahod Ebrahim reiterated that the distribution of the desalination machine project is intended for waterless communities in island provinces that have no access to clean and drinkable water.
