Abstract

Water – related parasitic diseases is severe problem that causes pain, disability and death around the world. Mostly people got infected by ingesting contaminated water. Increased water borne parasitic disease outbreaks were due to poor sanitation and water supply especially in the community of rural areas. Hence, researchers conducted quasi-experimental study in ICC Phils. Foundation Inc. in Floridablanca, Pampanga aimed to identify if their water from different sources is free from parasites and protozoans that may cause diseases and if residents were practicing purification process before consumption. Different water samples were collected upon the resident’s consents and survey was conducted if they practice water purification process. Microscopic analysis of water samples was conducted in SJC-PHINMA laboratory, and there were no parasites isolated and identified in different water samples upon the verification of RMT’s. Conclusions were made based on the gathered data; the residents were not practicing any water purification process before consuming their water.
