While Abundant Water continues to grow its presence in Timor-Leste our team in Laos ably led by Keith keeps going from strength to strength.
On top of the 100 village partnership with Caritas Luxembourg Abundant Water is also occasionally called upon to help deliver assistance to communities in urgent need. During the wet season late last year our team on the ground in Laos was faced with such a situation.
The Abundant Water team and Fokupers recently undertook a the field visit to Atauro Island. The trip was an opportunity to hold a workshop for the local community about the Fokupers Program and share the benfits of Abundant Water’s ceramic water filter system.
he Abundant Water Team have hit the ground running in Timor-Leste.
Tristan and Tom arrived in Dili on Tuesday the 13th of November linking back up with Joanico. Joanico is fresh from spending six weeks with the team in Laos where he learned the Abundant Water approach and project management skills alongside Tom. The team are excited to take everything we have learned over our decade of experience at Abundant Water and apply it to communities in Timor-Leste.
During its third round of field visits under its partnership in Xieng Khouang province Abundant Water and Caritas visited Namkiew village in Mok district. Namkiew is a majority Hmong village which has recently been affected by flooding.
During the visit Abundant Water was able to provide free filters to 9 families in Yourkmoon village whose houses were destroyed by a landslide in August. Among the families provided water filters was Mr. Mouane, whose family had to move into temporary accommodation after his house was destroyed.
