MANJULA Devi is a 58-year-old living with Parkinson's disease.
Her home, located along the Vatukoula Back Rd, has been without water for a few days.
She depends on a nearby borehole and a filled 44-gallon drum usually lasts her a week.
When a team from this newspaper arrived at her home on Monday, her supply had run out.
"We don't have proper water supply so we depend on the borehole," Ms Devi said.
"Some of the families pay $6 a month to use the borehole and that's where we go and fill our drums for the week."
She said the recent dry spell had affected supply.
"It's been very hot over the past few days and we haven't been able to retrieve water from the borehole.
"I haven't been able to do any washing or cleaning in the house because the drum is drying up."
She said cooking was also difficult.
Ms Devi lives on her own. Her son lives nearby but he was away.
"I get by with what I have but sometimes it becomes difficult because I have to struggle when there is no water."
