Australia's engagement with Asia: Water - a case study on Flores
In Indonesia, many areas lack clean water. This makes it hard to keep residents healthy. World Vision Australia works with Indonesian towns to set up pipelines to the clean water sources to transport it to the areas of dirty water. This helps the villages work together and benefit off having clean water to drink and uncontaminated food. This improves life in Indonesia and they are very thankful for it.
The children of this village were once sick and could not regularly wash their hands due to the fact water was hard to find, and if it was found the quality was poor. World Vision helped by building a pipeline, which brings clean drinking water to this village. They can now bathe regularly and drink clean water.
Having this clean water also benefits the community from an economic standpoint. The abundance of clean water now attracts educators to their village and it also helps with creation of bricks. These bricks can be sold and can be used for their home improvement projects.
This video shows a positive side to globalization. The Australian organization that worked with the people in these rural villages to get them access to clean water. The quality of life when up hugely when the people could access water in their homes. The hours needed to trek to the wells was eliminated and the water have created jobs and better quality of life for the villages.
