- Paranda Village, Indonesia
- December 2018
Paranda Village has only one well to provide enough water for over two hundred people. In the dry season, the well dries up, and nearby wells are unsuitable for drinking. This has a huge impact on community health and hygiene. Michael works for an organisation called Amos Aid Australia who have been aiding the locals for over three years. Surveys have found that new wells would be unsuitable for Paranda. The current project is to construct comprehensive clean water facilities. This involves tapping an underground spring, gravity feeding the water to a central location, building both distribution and reservoir tanks and a pipe network.
Michael lives in Perth. He believes that strongly in everyone’s right to clean drinking water. When he’s not working, he enjoys following auto racing.
