This is Ibu Dewi, she lives in the small village of Balik Bukit, up near the Kintamani volcano about 70 kilometers from the center of Bali, Indonesia. Most days Ibu Dewi wakes up early in the morning to get water from her rain tank and boils it for several hours so her family has a day worth of drinking water. Often, they drink the water directly from the water tank or tap without cleaning it at all.
During the dry season, the conditions are worse because there is no rain at all. In order to get water, Ibu Dewi or her husband have to buy it from the bottom of the mountain, which is 8 kilometers away from the village. They spend 150,000 Rupiah for 750 liters of water, which is a lot for these families. In the dry season, Ibu Dewi's husband has no income from farming and will either have to manage the money they made in the rainy 3 months, or look for jobs outside of their regency. Meanwhile drilling to get well water in this village has not been done before because the area is so dry, therefore it may mean drilling hundreds of meters, which is costly and not guaranteed to work.
Ibu Dewi's family is only one of 400 other families in Bali Bukit that does not have running water in the home at all. In Bali, as is the case in most of Indonesia, most people rely on existing water sources outside their home for drinking water, such as rain, rivers, or nearby wells. According to the Ministry of Health, 60% of the families that boil their water do not boil it enough to kill harmful bacteria and parasites that contribute to more than 10% of child mortality in Indonesia. The COVID19 pandemic has worsened the economic situation of these families and has brought to light the importance of access to safe drinking water, and basic water, sanitation, and hygiene for preventing the spread of disease.
Kerja Bakti and Terra Water have come together for Phase One of a multi-phase project to support Ibu Dewi and her village with easy-to-use, affordable, and culturally appropriate solutions to help her and her family gain access to safe drinking water.
Together, let's #FREETHEWATER
