As part of its unwavering support for Mayor Jeannie Sandoval's uplifting initiatives in Malabon, Maynilad, in collaboration with the local government, donates four 9-meter Ginhawa Gardens. These lush gardens are designed to cultivate various vegetables, ensuring that the residents of Bgy. Potrero have easier access to nutritious food for their families. The turn-over ceremony, held today, also introduced a rainwater harvesting system, benefitting the Ladies Brigade in nurturing the vegetable garden.

Food security remains a paramount concern for Malabueños, and Maynilad's recent contribution to the city's programs further bolsters Mayor Jeannie Sandoval's ongoing efforts.

The 9-meter Ginhawa Gardens, a brainchild of Maynilad's community outreach, aims to empower local communities by fostering self-sustainability. By providing a diverse range of vegetables, the gardens enable residents to grow their own produce, promoting a healthier and more resilient community.


The rainwater harvesting system, integrated into the vegetable garden, is an eco-conscious addition to the initiative. By utilizing rainwater, the Ladies Brigade can efficiently water the plants, minimizing water wastage and supporting environmentally friendly practices.

Mayor Jeannie Sandoval expressed her heartfelt appreciation to Maynilad for selecting Malabon as one of the beneficiaries of their impactful projects. She envisions extending similar programs to all barangays, ensuring that every Malabueño has access to nutritious food and water during times of need.

"Food security is a collective endeavor, and we are grateful for Maynilad's partnership in this noble cause. Together, we can foster a stronger and more resilient Malabon," said Mayor Sandoval.

The Ginhawa Gardens and rainwater harvesting system stand as symbols of unity between the private sector and local government, collaborating to empower communities and promote self-reliance. By nurturing these gardens, Malabueños can look forward to a more sustainable future, fostering a community equipped to face challenges with resilience and fortitude.
