Over craggy terrain in the remote village of Monggis in Borneo, Malaysia, Pumpuar Dasim walked the one-kilometer (.6 mile) trip three times a day to fill her bucket with water for her household of three people. Upon reaching the stream, if the oxen were bathing, the 58-year-old had to turn back and return later in the day. Walking barefoot in the mountainous jungle, this was no small task, yet a necessity for the village’s farming livelihood.
Cholera, typhoid and other water-borne diseases are a major threat, yet this was the only source of water for the nearly 1,000 villagers. The government told the villagers it would be another 16 years before running water in their homes was a reality. But the Lions made it a reality in a short four months—the time from when they received LCIF grant funding to the time the clean water project was complete.
Korean and Malaysian Lions partnered for a matching International Assistance Grant of US$20,000 to establish a pipe system to channel water from an unpolluted mountain stream. The small black pipe can be seen running along the gravel mountain road for 21 kilometers (13 miles) before it winds into the jungle to the water source. The water is filtered and then distributed directly to individual homes. All of the villages now have a spigot with high-pressure water in their homes as well as two central faucets in the village’s center.
Without the long walks for water each day, Dasim can now spend more time doing other things for her family and village. “Many, many thanks to the Lions for this nice gift. It has changed my life a lot,” she said.
