AFTER living without piped water for three days, Suruj Pal was relieved when water trucks arrived at Mataniqara Village in Ba last Saturday.

“Water is important. I am thankful to Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) for sending this water truck to us,” he said.

“No water, no life.”

He said they had to buy drinking water and collect rain water for other household use.

“We were using rain water to cook, bath and wash our clothes and now that WAF has supplied us water we have safe and clean water to drink.”
