For the past two months, we have been on the Mbinudita site

Our teams have been on the SD Mbinudita site for two months for the Water Connections project, clean, safe and clean water for all. The Mbinudita school is the centre of life for an entire region, where more than 2,500 people live, divided into nearly 250 families, the vast majority of whom are children. The social, technical, medical and logistics staff and documentalists have been working for several months on the realization of this unique project. The Water Connections program connects groups of houses and an entire population to clean water connections, sometimes houses more than three kilometres apart from each other. This uses buried pipes, 6500-litre tanks, healthy sanitary facilities, and our boreholes. The innovation is that we mainly use gravity, iron and cement for the construction.

A huge ceremony that took more than 4 days of preparation took place on June 25, 2022 on the #sdmbinudita school site. In the presence of the Regent of East Sumba, Drs. Khristofel Praing and a number of officials, we have been able to visit the facilities already in place and built as part of the clean water access project for more than 2,500 people. Doing it on a motorcycle with the Bupati was exceptional!

Water is when we don’t have it that we realise how important it is!

Water we do not realize how important it is when we have access to it like that, by opening a simple tap and sometimes forgetting to close it. Water is when we don’t have it that we realize how important it is, how vital it is for our everyday life. So for a moment, let’s try to imagine what our life could be like without water. And if we have access to it, that this water is not consumable! This is what the families experience here, the children of all these villages in which Fair Future works almost 24 hours a day. The health of people, the prevention of diseases, the reduction of infant mortality, offering a better quality of life, food every day, a shower every day and for everyone are just a few aspects that oblige us to work and develop. innovative and sustainable solutions, relating to access to water in quantity and quality for families in the poorest and rural regions.
