Commissioning the the $33,959 Ecological Purification System (EPS) project Bainimarama said:

“Universal access to water is a basic human right and an essential building block of development. Every day of our lives water keeps us hydrated, clean and healthy.”

“When our water quality is poor, the quality of our lives suffers in return.”

“But when we have safe drinking water that is available around the clock, we can go to school and go to work uninterrupted by disease or the time-consuming process of finding clean water.”

“This is only the beginning. We are working hard to ensure our current economic success will continue so that we can usher in even more new development to your region. Clean water is only the first step to developing your community and local economy. More can and more will be done to improve the quality of your lives and keep you all as healthy as you can be.”

210 people reside in Navidamu.
