Changing Lives through Water
For many years, Emilia, a mother of four from Timor Leste, lived in a community without access to clean safe drinking water. With four young children, collecting water was difficult.
She had to walk for long distances several times a day which took her away from her children. This all changed when we installed a water pump in Emilia’s village.
