Our Respected Donors
I hope this letter finds you well.
The necessity of water well in some regions in Indonesia is very important for the community. The community have to find the water by walking on foot for long distance to get clean water. To support the necessity of water well ACT Foundation keep continue to build the water well.
The latest one in Serapung Village, Kuala Kampar District, Pelalawan, in 2020. The water that flows from the well is allocated to support the community activities. However, in practice, the benefits of water are widespread because it is also used by residents for their daily needs.
Usually, Serapung residents start to fetch water from the Water Well at dusk or around 5 in the afternoon. At that time, residents usually queue up jerry cans to be filled with water suitable for consumption. This was done by the residents because the water source in Serapung for consumption was very rare, so before the Water Well was established, residents had to buy water to enjoy it.
"Since there is a Water Well here, it is easier for the residents to collect the water for the consumption. Previously, it was difficult to get water here, ”said Zaujar, Head of Serapung Village in mid-March.
In Serapung, water suitable for consumption is very difficult to find, so residents have to reach into their pockets to buy it. The location adjacent to the sea makes groundwater sources salty, while digging fresh water sources requires even more budget.
Thank you so much for your sincere corporation and kind support for Indonesian community.
