Wananavu Kadavu, fresh water for Fiji

Wananavu Kadavu, a non-governmental organisation (NGO), is working with Government to provide safe and clean water to villagers on the island.
Ben Sorensen, project manager for Wananavu Kadavu, said water was in abundance in Kadavu and many other maritime areas, but it had not been always easily accessible.
“We contain the water, dam the water, make a reservoir and then pump it into schools, health centres and other areas of the community,” Mr Sorensen said.
“The aim of the NGO is to inform the rest of the globe that there is a need for clean water for sanitary reasons as well as for drinking.”
Commissioner Eastern Lieutenant-Colonel Netani Rika said Government recognised the need for clean water. It is working with Wananavu Kadavu to help address this.
The NGO started in 2009 from the realisation that not enough people in Fiji had access to clean water.
In order to raise funds necessary for each project, Wananavu Kadavu hosts fundraising events and takes private donations throughout the year.
  Safe drinking water

AN American-based non-profit organisation Wananavu Kadavu has partnered with local communities in Kadavu in a bid to supply clean water.

Commissioner Eastern Netani Rika said the organisation had been exploiting surface springs to provide safe drinking water to the people in the rural areas.

The organisation has built reservoir tanks and equipment worth $US10,000 ($F18,231) that supplies fresh water to approximately 2000 people.

Mr Rika said the organisation had been doing a good work in Kadavu and the government would be supporting them in their projects soon.

"We will help them in freight requirements," he said.

"Every applicant that wants to apply for the clean water project to be installed in their village will have to apply to my office, I will endorse it and forward it to the organisation," he added.

Mr Rika said the people in Kadavu did not access clean drinking water and it was only successful through Wananavu Kadavu.

 

He said as Fiji was prevalent to many water-borne diseases, Wananavu Kadavu's efforts could soon be implemented in various parts of Fiji to help locals facing water problems.
