World Vision Papua New Guinea

From creeks to taps

Women bear the burden of walking distances and collecting water to survive in Moson-Tale Village of Nawaeb District in Morobe Province. Collecting water from open creeks and rivers can lead to health issues, especially water-borne diseases common in Papua New Guinea.  With support from the Australian NGO Cooperation Program, access to clean and safe drinking water has improved the lives of this community.

"Fetching water is hard work because the river is very far. World Vision brought water to our village. I'm happy because now we have water taps in our homes. Life is easier for us," Imbi Ngawai (45).
