Youth With A Mission (Y.W.A.M.) and the Honorary Consul of Switzerland in Samoa, Sylvie Salanoa, have joined forces to help people families who desperately need water.
From Ululoloa to Faleasi’u-uta, some 22 families, with the majority of them having featured in the Samoa Observer’s Village Voice, are today extremely grateful for the assistance where they have been donated water tanks.
The Water Tank project was the cause for great celebration at the Y.W.A.M camp on Thursday.
Y.W.A.M leader, Usufono Fepulea’i, said they are pleased and thank God Almighty for the opportunity to extend a helping hand. The goal of the protect is to provide a means for families to collect water.
“We have been hearing stories of families in this area with no water, and we also read the Samoa Observer’s Village Voice articles about this issue and that’s where the idea came from,” he said.
“So we started to conduct our own survey and found out that it was real, that there are people who don’t even have access to water at all.
“The neighborhood around the area always gets water from other people and they also pay lots of money in order to get water and that’s why this project was so important.”
