A group called Women Arise, has donated drums for homeless mothers to collect rainwater for drinking, in Lae’s Limki settlement.
It comes several months after a clash erupted, resulting in properties torched.
Women Arises, Sarah Todd, says with the containers, the women folk will now be able to catch fresh water.
The twenty drums, which will be used to collect and hold rainwater for cooking and drinking, were sourced by members of Women Arise, for families made homeless in the Limki clash, almost two months ago.
Women Arise members met Jenny Nul at her market, a Limki resident who was interviewed in EMTV’s Tok Piksa, several weeks ago. This picture was taken at Limki settlement, after fights displaced over 300 women and children.
The fight destroyed most of their properties, including drums that they use to collect rainwater for domestic use.
After the fight, they had been collecting water from the nearby, Bumbu River.
Women’s rights advocate, Sarah Todd, is now appealing to all other business houses and individuals, to help women and children left homeless after settlement clashes.
