Report of the water connections project

Fair Future regularly presents reports establishing what we have achieved in all our necessary actions. The document that we offer you here explains what, all together, we have been doing over the past twelve months as part of this colossal project, Water Connections, Mbinudita Site. As a reminder, this project aims to provide access to drinking water and sanitation to more than 2,500 people whose homes are scattered over nearly 10 hectares.

We do not stop; the teams of Fair Future and Kawan Baik foundations have already built, as part of the #waterconnections project, site of #mbinudita #sdmbinudita, more than thirty (30) tanks of more than 6000 litres, six ( 6) complete sanitary facilities including two toilets, showers, laundry washing and water collection point. More than 10,000 meters of PVC pipes have been buried, connecting all these installations. We still have a lot of work to do. It’s intense activity.

Fair Future develops participatory monitoring tools as part of its screening and definition of needs. This map is produced as part of the #WaterConnections project. It is updated as a new sewerage installation, a new deep borehole, a new clean water reservoir and everything that directly or indirectly affects this project is built. This Google map allows us to work, do this project and calculate: Heights, elevations, distances, depths etc… Thanks to this tool, this project is much easier to set up.

Water Connections from the sky – 04 October 2022

The health burden of poor-quality water is enormous, and providing clean water to such a large population is a considerable challenge. Indonesia, particularly the east of this immense country, is characterized by a non-uniformity in the level of awareness and socio-economic development. Therefore, our two foundations do what they can. These few images are taken from the sky and show you what this major project consists of, Water Connections: Drinking water and sanitation for 2,500 people.

The past few weeks have been hectic for all of us here in East Sumba. What a titanic job we are all doing with the help of our friends, the villagers, and members of the rural communities of Mbinudita. The nights are short, and the days are very long and hot too. Imagine, friends, it’s almost 40°, and we work under a blazing sun, which almost anaesthetizes us if we don’t hydrate ourselves enough.

With a few friends from Kawan Baik and Fair Future, we had the privilege and emotion to experience a touching moment, thanks to the strong words of villagers living in a very isolated region of eastern Indonesia. We felt that these brave people had hope that time and the Lord might bring them a better life. For that, we have no choice but to help them.
