Water Connections is not just about giving water to an entire community! Water is defined by where we live and our needs. Between the modern world and the rural world, things are so different and the definition of water takes on another meaning.
What do you need? What do they need? What do they really want? Through our actions, we respond to their real needs: to have clean water, to drink more, to eat better, to take a shower regularly, to grow vegetables, to germinate their seeds and therefore to have a healthier, more harmonious life… Happier!
Fair Future and Kawan Baik Foundations bring life around water to an entire community in an extremely rural area. Water in quality and quantity thanks to the #waterconnections project as part of #rebuildmbinudita.
Hey there, research has shown that being near, in, on, or underwater can provide a long list of benefits for our minds and bodies, including reduced stress and anxiety. , the increase of a general feeling of well-being and happiness and of course better general health… Among others!
For us humans in the modern world, water is not just a vital need for our body, it is also a resource that we benefit from on a daily basis. At home, we use it for cooking and eating healthy, for cleaning, showering, and flushing the toilet. Our food, clothes, cell phones, cars, and books all use water in their production.
Here, in the most rural areas of Indonesia, having drinkable, healthy water is a luxury enjoyed by very few people. Water is for drinking, cooking, washing, gardening and that’s it. Except that benefiting from these 4 advantages at the same time is rare. Very few people have enough to eat, they shower once a week, and they don’t drink enough water for a healthy life. Going to the toilet to do these needs, happens in nature, because without water, there is no toilet. As for gardening, it will only be if there is a little water left.
We humans in a modern world use water to build our homes, schools, and roads, as well as to heat buildings and cool power plants. With the electricity we produce from its movement, we light up our cities and our homes. On a hot summer day, we dive into a river, into the sea, or walk along the edge of a lake to cool off.
Here, in the most rural regions of Indonesia, we don’t need water to build our houses, they are mainly made of wood and bamboo. Our roads are dirt and pebble paths and most of us do not have access to electricity in our homes. We don’t flush the toilet because we don’t have a toilet. Here, it is always very hot and our perspiration will dry naturally with the wind that sweeps our hills.
We build water connections to help them have a better life and you can be a part of this amazing program. Thank you for your support.
