Posted on June 24, 2009. Filed under: Muslim Aid Australia |


Lengkong Village, RT 01/ RW 01, Cerme Sub district, Gresik Regency, East Java


Why we choose this village ?

We build the water well in this location because of the people who leave here are lack of clean water furthermore in dry season. People didn’t have water well. This location doesn’t reached by PDAM water. So, until now people used water from the lake. The lake be at distance of 3 km from the village. If they can’t take by them self, they should pay labor Rp 5.000,- for each cart, every cart contains of 8 jerry can.

In dry season the lake become dry too, so they should looking for water until the other village, and of course the distance is longer than before. In this condition, they can buy water but the price is too expensive for them, it’s about Rp 25.000 for 1.000 liters of water. But actually the water only ca be used for 3 days, so they should buy again in 3 days. Totally in one month they should pay Rp 250.000 to fulfill their need on water.


What we do ?

√ Drilled the water well

√ Preparing new torn

√ Installing new pump
