The villagers of Sikapak village in South Pariaman sub-district has relied on water pump to obtain clean water. However the 7.9 R.S. has damaged the water pump and contaminated most of the wells. CWS will coordinate with Plan International to address this matter.
“I’m so happy with the pillow tank that gives us clean water,” said Mariana, a villager who currently stays nearby a pillow tank with 5,000 liters capacity that CWS has recently set up in Sungai Sirah village. After the earthquake, the villagers had to go to the river, which is located 150 m away from their temporary shelters to get water.
CWS has also distributed a total of 16,000 liters water in 11 locations in Sungai Limau sub-district on October 22, where water supply controller teams that consist of local villager have been established to monitor the pillow tanks and ensure the flow of water supply for the local community.
