Water Project
Written by fra Ivica Perić

Because of such a large population, Padri Vjeko Curic managed to tap water from a spring which is a few kilometers away from Kivumu Parish. It has so far been serving for 20 years now. However, from time and again repairs are quite necessary especially to the pipes and taps. Since the initiation of this water project, waterborne diseases are now kept at check. This spring water is a blessing as it flows with gravity and needs no pumping to places.

However, we must start thinking ahead because the population to which Padri Vjeko provided this water has rapidly grown within the 20 years and the water is never enough. Some taps have been closed due to the scarcity of water even though it is in high demand especially in social places we have like schools, dispensary, and the Church.

This is the catchment area for our ware as small as it is. It is situated on the foot of a hill and from here our water comes.

Water for life.

From the small catchment it eventually enters this tank from where we are all supplied with water through the force of gravity. We are lucky because we need no pump or generator to pump the water to our places; it flows by itself through force of gravity.
