Villagers of Natavea in the Naitasiri Province are grateful that the problems they had been facing for the past 54 years is no more.

Former teacher and Natavea village member, Raijeli Musu says 54 years ago, they had been struggling to get access to clean water supply and proper waste disposal systems.

Musu says since their village was relocated in 1965, these two issues became a nightmare for them as their water was supplied from a well which stood at the bottom of the hill from the village.

Musu says that Natavea village began from 5 households and now has 36 households and this increase in population has intensified their struggles.

She says that with the 10 new washing rooms, 2 large water tanks, and 10 flush toilets that were constructed by the Rotary Pacific Water for Life Foundation, the issue their forefathers faced will now be a thing of the past.

Musu says with their new sand filtered water system, they now have access to clean and safe drinking water in their own homes.
