We have never dreamt of this day to come, where everything would just be so easy for us and we are really blessed and thankful to this gang for taking their time out to come and help us.

These were the words of 53year old Malolo native, Turaga ni Koro, Jone Kadivuka after being offered free dental and clean water.

?For the clean water, it?s just amazing, we never thought that there was anything of that sort exists and it?s really easy,? 67-year-old villager, Jeremaia Nasilsila said. ?The villagers were only resorting to rain water after cyclone Evan had hit, till we got here to set it up.?

?Malolo is the first Island in Fiji we?re settling it up on, we just started on Monday when we arrived here,? he said.

The villagers were also taught on how to operate it, and they are now using it.
