Pahang, Water Poverty Challenge Project

Posted by | Jun 27, 2021 |

The Inner Wheel Club of Kuala Lumpur of District 330 completed constructing three wells for the three villages - Sekupang Village, Baret Village and Jabik Village, located in the State of Pahang, Malaysia. With this, the Club was proud to announce another Water Poverty Challenge project on 24th May 2021 has completed despite the many Movement Control Order (MCO) implemented by the country, and it was made possible with the help of Mr John Chin, who has 20 years of experience in building wells.

The construction of the wells were undertaken by the Orang Asli (indigenous people) residing in the villages, all the three wells were completed within 2 months. Each well cost RM3,500 to build, which includes the cost of building materials, well rings, water pipes, a pump and a 600-gallon water tank.

The output of water from each well is adequate for a cluster of 5 to 7 families in a village. The water in each tank provides a constant supply of water for cooking, washing and also planting.

This is indeed a very commendable project where many of the homes in these villages start to enjoy clean water for their daily usage. The joy of seeing all the Orang Asli benefiting from the three wells will truly touch the hearts of the members of the Club. Tribute to President Caylice Sabado and DEC Juanita Lee for coordinating and seeing through the success of this project.
