BACOLOD CITY, Philippines - Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon is calling on Filipinos to vote for the country's lone entry among the 12 finalists from around the globe vying for the British Broadcasting Corp.'s World Challenge 2010 title.

The Alternative Indigenous Development Foundation Inc. based in Barangay (village) Mansilingan, Bacolod City, is the lone Philippine finalist, for its hydraulic ram pump that has brought water to numerous remote villages in Negros and other parts of the country.

Marañon called on Filipinos, especially Negrenses, to vote for the foundation, which has made a big difference in the lives of the poor, before the November 12 deadline. To vote for AIDFI, all one has to do is to turn on a computer and the Internet and go to www.theworldchallenge.co.uk/2010-finalists-project08.php and vote, AIDFI chief executive officer Auke Idzenga said. "Peru is ahead of the Philippines in the online voting but if Filipinos unite we can create a tsunami of votes," Idzenga said.

He also urged the people to share the link on their Facebook and other social networking accounts and urge their friends to vote.

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia also appealed to Bacoleños and Filipinos worldwide to vote for AIDFI.

Idzenga said the hydraulic ram pump pumps water to high elevations without fuel and electricity, powered only by water. Its model unit uses ordinary door hinges as the main moving part.

"Using the power of a river's flow to literally push water uphill without any other energy input, it's proving to be a boon for poor villagers living in mountainous regions," BBC said on its website: http// www.theworldchallenge.co.uk/indexing.

The ram pump could save hours of back-breaking work carrying water and cash when expensive water pumps are repaired, it added.

The AIDFI has installed ram pumps in 170 villages, providing easy access to water for some 50,000 beneficiaries in the Philippines.

The Negros Occidental provincial government and various local governments have also used the AIDFI ramp pumps to bring water to remote barangays, the governor said.

A documentary about the work of AIDFI with hydraulic ram pumps that was filmed by the BBC would be shown on BBC World News 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. November 6 and 10:30 p.m. on November 7.
