Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama stated that for a healthy community to thrive, they need clean water.
He made this statement in Nacavanadi, Gau last week where he commissioned several projects by the Government in the Lomaiviti Group.
“We do this by making special efforts in the rural area to educate your children, to keep you safe and healthy, to provide internet and legal service and to bring you electrical power and clean water,” he said.
“I have said many times that we cannot have two Fijis, one Fiji that enjoys all the advantages of the modern world and one that is denied those same advantages. We cannot have one Fiji of opportunity and hope and another Fiji that struggles to obtain what people need to have a healthy and productive life.
“We cannot have one Fiji where clean water and electricity are abundant and taken for granted and another Fiji where people never know if they will have the water and power they need.”
A new water system installed in the village by the Water Authority of Fiji consists of a large catchment for rainwater and a piping system to distribute water in the village.
