Water and Sanitation in Vanuatu
In Vanuatu, fresh tap water is hard to come by. In rural areas, where most people in Vanuatu live, clean water in homes is a rarity. Women and children cover huge distances sourcing clean water that is free from diseases such as typhoid, cholera and giardia. Recognising the needs of their community, the Church of Melanesia has made clean water programs a priority this year. Both the Dioceses of Vanuatu and of Banks and Torres have identified villages that desperately need clean, potable water. They plan to pipe water to communal tap-stands in these communities.
