WITH the aim of creating sustainable access to piped water in as many communities as possible, the Rotary Pacific Water for Life Foundation came much closer to achieving its goal this week after it received assistance from FIJI Water Foundation.

The FIJI Water Foundation provided a grant of $150,000 to the Rotary Pacific Water at the Vodafone Fiji headquarters in Tamavua to assist the foundation.

"The FIJI Water Foundation is proud of its ongoing partnership with RPWFL, which enables us to contribute to the building of sustainable water infrastructure where it is most needed here in Fiji ­— access to safe drinking water should be available to all, especially children," said FIJI Water CEO Rokoseru Nabalarua.

So far, Rotary Pacific, through assiatance, small grants and other sources of help, managed to complete 220 projects around the country.
