Awareness for water project to be done

Provinces in the Southern Region will be visited in the coming months by the National Planning team that was involved in the installation of desalination plants in Manus province.

National project manager of the desalination plants, Tom Anayabere, said the aim of the awareness is to get the interest of the community, as well as donor agencies, so that they will see the importance of it and continue to support such projects.

“I will be conducting awareness at Fisherman Island in NCD, Hula village in Central province, Ihu in Gulf, Kwato in Milne Bay and we will stop by at Dogura along the way to Northern Province and conduct an awareness there, and also Taraparuru and finish at Tufi.

“After I return from there, I will also be conducting another awareness at Daru as well because of the impact of Fly River,” Anayabere said.

The team successfully closed the project in Manus this month and are now looking forward to more projects.

“We need more of it, and we need people who are willing to go down on the field, live with the people, know their suffering so that you can help them for the better.”
