Three months without water and still waiting

Resident in the squatter settlement of Tauvegavega in Ba are calling for help after three months without water

Ashok Kumar, a resident in the area said even before the floods hit the area, there was no water in the taps.

“There has been no water in the day or night and as a result the residents of this area have to go to wells and sometimes even hire lorries to go and fetch water from creeks,” said Mr Kumar.

He said water trucks carted water to the area but only stopped on the main road and did not come to provide supply to areas off the main road.
