Climbing of steep hills and slopes to access water will be a thing of the past for villages along the Hidden Valley Mine in Morobe.
This comes after Morobe Mining constructed a water supply system and installed twelve water taps for over three hundred people to benefit from.
General Manager Sustainability and External Relations, David Wissink, said Morobe Mining wants to see locals use clean healthy water. He also mentioned the company presenting school materials to the local elementary school, and encouraged parents to allow their children to attend.
Local leader at Manki Village, John Auteto, said for too long, the villagers waited for a service such as this.“ It’s very hard for our people to walk up and down these steep slopes to fetch water every day. In the dry season, it gets harder. I want to say thank you to Morobe Mining for recognizing our need,” he said.
Mr Auteto encouraged his people to look after these resources. The taps are distributed equally among three hamlets, with the water source coming from underground springs.
Morobe Mining has implemented more than forty water supply projects throughout the Watut and Wafi-Golpu areas.
