RAIN water harvesting is the answer to water problems in the Yasawa islands.

The new project by Vinaka Fiji Yasawa Trust Foundation was designed to supply water to villages in Nacula district.

Vinaka Fiji operations manager Elenoa Nimacere said the foundation worked with the Water Authority of Fiji on the project.

"We started with rain water harvesting with WAF to work on the drinking water problem in some areas in the Yasawas," she said.

"We introduced the World Health Organization system in this project which has been giving five litres per person per day for six months.

Mrs Nimacere said the government supplied water tanks.

"We helped by providing the technical support and providing resources like setting up the tanks in the village and the piping system.

"In some areas we did the whole work from supplying the tank and the piping system."
