Bring water to a Vanuatu village (Drink, Pray, Love)

$6,075 of $17,000 goal
Given by 80 generous donors in around 6 months

We are raising funds to support the construction and maintenance of a water pump to bring safe clean water to a village in Vanuatu.

Manawatu / Whanganui

In some parts of Vanuatu women and children have to walk for long distance to bring water to their village, sometimes carrying 20L on their shoulders, 4 times a day, for up to 4 hours. Safe, clean water is saved and restricted access leads to health problems such as diarrhoea or skin conditions. Furthermore, the long journey to get water means that children have less time to go to school, and women are at risk of injuries and more serious problems such as miscarriages.

UNICEF NZ is organising the set up of ram pumps that bring the water directly to the villages without any fuel. They also train communities on hygiene and water use and management, as well as water system maintenance.

The total cost of this system is estimated at around 17,000 NZD per village, including tools, pump, pipes, taps, water tank and community training.

Your donation will fund UNICEF’s water pump project in Vanuatu. Should the funds raised exceed the programming needs, your donation will be used to fund related water and sanitation programs in the Pacific.
