A Samoan fale with half of it in good condition accommodates a father and his 4 children. The family relies on the father’s plantation for a living. They have never had access to their own tap water but fetched water instead from a relative next door. Life has been a struggle for the Aleki household at Faleula.
However, Tulaga Aleki now has one less worry, with the installation of a 1,000 litre water tank under the SVSG Juniors Clean Water Project. With funding support from the Chan Mow Company Limited, the SVSG Juniors was able to purchase and install a water tank for the Aleki household.
“At last, there will be no more water worries for me and my children,” says an emotional Tulaga Aleki.
Tulaga shared on how a lot of things have changed at their humble household since the installation of the water tank. The children can now attend school instead of collecting water all day, or being sick from waterborne illnesses. As for Tulaga, he now has more time to care for his family and expand his plantation to sustainable levels without the water worries.
It is amazing how things other people take for granted like accessing clean water, are appreciated with humility by others.
For the SVSG Juniors, the youth groups is just glad that it was able to source out funding support from the business community, in this case, Chan Mow Company Limited, which enabled the underpriviledged families like Tulaga Aleki, to access clean water as they rightly deserve.
“Thank you so much Komisi and the Chan Mow family for supporting our Clean Water Project for our community in need.” Carmenita Solaese, SVSG Junior President
