Drought that has occurred in recent times has caused many people to have difficulty accessing clean water.

Water sources such as wells and rivers run dry and residents have difficulty meeting daily clean water needs such as for bathing, washing and cooking.Massive drought occurred in Central Java, as many as 1,319 villages in 27 cities / districts were affected by drought.This condition occurs every year and is inevitable considering the natural conditions of Central Java.

Various Ways Are Done To Get Clean Water

Mrs. Sini (71 years old) and her family who live in RW 03, Jabung Sub-district, Tembalang District, Semarang City must walk far from her house to a water source that is not infrequently exhausted.

“Pun Suwe, Keringe niki. Sumure mboten enak mambune, enten lindu’e, ngga iso dinggo.” (sudah lama kekeringan ini terjadi, kalaupun ada air di sumur, baunya tidak sedap)- ujar Bu Sini

In addition there are Mrs. Sugiarti (51) and Mbah Toadi (66).

Mrs. Sugiarti said that the well in Muktiharjo Lor village, Genuk sub-district, Semarang City had dried up completely and could no longer be relied upon to get clean water.Meanwhile, Mbah Toadi who is a resident of Kamal Hamlet, Menoreh Village, Salaman, Magelang Regency must dig a dried riverbed to meet their water needs.In the village of Kalikayen, East Ungaran District. Villagers are forced to use the remaining river water to wash dishes and clothes, and even use it in the same place for bathing.

Those who are able to buy clean water, who are not able to go fetch water as far as 10-15 km

In Siremeng Village, Pulosari Pemalang Regency, most residents cannot bathe every day, during the dry season residents depend on government assistance (water dropping) and mobile water vendors who sell at +/- Rp 2500, - per jerry can.Sadly, for those who cannot afford to buy water, periodically and the group (they) go to the river in Moga Subdistrict which is approximately 10 s.d. 15 Km by pickup truck.

Neither in Koro Hamlet, Sitimulyo Village, Pucakwangi District Pati. Its citizens depend on clean water assistance distributed by the government or private sector, which comes in uncertain times.Currently Ibu Sini, Ibu Sugiarti, Mbah Toadi and other Central Java residents need our help to be able to get clean water and have easy access to clean water. The clean water Droping Program is a form of emergency response from ACT to help provide clean water to the community. Meanwhile, the Waqf Well / Alms Well (the construction of wells at the point of drought) is a long-term solution

#OrangBaik, let's help ease the burden of our brothers and sisters affected by the water crisis in Central Java.
