Yustina (35), who lives in Malabae village in Bengkayang district in West Kalimantan province, no longer needs to walk for one kilometer to collect water. “Now I can get clean water 24 hours a day right inside my house,” said the mother of three children. Water is now available abundantly for all the 74 families in Malabae village following the completion of a three kilometer long water piping project built jointly by the local community and Wahana Visi Indonesia. Besides the water project at the village, World Vision also supported similar community-based water projects in four other villages in Bengkayang. The water projects benefit some 3000 people and help reduce water-borne diseases in the area.
