Remote Reef Islands welcome water supply projects

May 30, 2016

Women and children living in remote Reef Islands in the Solomon Islands have welcomed new water supply projects.

Before the projects many girls in the villages were tasked with walking long distances to fetch water every day.

Temotu Pele MP Dudley Kopu said:
