Another handpump was provided to a community so far from a source of water that the women could only farm half each day, because they needed to fetch water in the afternoon. Woman alone bathing at pump is Nget Lam (53). Thirty families use this well. Quote from Nget Lam: "Before I could only haul 5 kilos of water for my family of three. It's not enough. Sometimes we would have to go days without bathing. Now water is my joy".
