This year’s Water for All project aims to fill the need in four outlying communities within Vanua Levu, and one in Suva, Fiji; installing water tanks (which come with their own stands and fittings) to meet everyday needs for clean and safe water. The Anglicare Officer from the Diocese of Polynesia in Fiji monitors the implementation of the water tanks.
Communities and projects to be supported are:
- St Leonard’s Church Hall, Savusavu – this hall is a kindergarten for 74 children. it is also a place where parishioners from coastal areas come to sleep when they come to Savusavu for medical reasons or en route to Suva.
- Dromuninuki, Taveuni – there are six households in this community and water in this area is not easily accessible.
- Delaivuna, Taveuni – this farming community has 5 households and water supply is intermittent. They worship at the church at Dromuninuki.
- Nadawa, Suva – the 14 households here drink from only one tap. Becuase the land is still not secured yet, they are not able to receive a reliable and safe water supply.
- Wainaloka, Ovalau – there are 48 households in this area. They currently have a cement tank, but it is not adequate for their needs.
In 2019 $25,000 was also spent providing water tanks; and
In 2018 $33,000 was given to the Water for All project – read here the report provided by Anglicare Polynesia, who ensures completion of the project.
The Diocese of Polynesia sends “a big thank you to AMB for funding”.
From a visit to our projects (May 2019); here below are photos from Vunilagi and Devodara – villages on Vanua Levu; who both received water tanks last year.
