Mama @ Work: Water Water Everywhere....

I'm so happy that my Mama and her team have delivered another portion of their water and sanitation project. It would mean less time spent elsewhere and more time spent with me....errr....not quite but that's not the point.

What I'd like to say is that about 3,000 inhabitants of an island in Sabah are now enjoying the fruits of Mama's labour, first, in the form of clean drinkable water, second, modern latrines and third, electricity from solar power. The project was featured in The Star where the reporter also interviewed Mama. The scanned pages are as the following.




Happy moment for Mama (& gang) on  project delivery day.
The children can now enjoy going to the toilets!
Solar is power....for the children....!
Completion of the project, however, doesn't mean that Mama will stop visiting the island as "we will continue with the upkeep and maintenance for at least another three years," she said. Hmmm...does that mean we'll relocate there, Mama?

At present, Mama is working hard to convince some corporate sponsors to fund several additional projects that will benefit the islanders in the long run. Among them, skills training for the young people and income generation for the families.

Angelina's note: Will I achieve my dream of becoming an island cat? purrr....meow!

You should be very proud of your Mama, Angelina. She is doing good work that changes lives permanently, and for the better. Children can't concentrate on schoolwork if hygiene and health are major issues.

Dear Pakcik,
What you're doing is something intangible whereas what my Mama does is something measureable physicallly. We even have to calculate the output versus usage of the water. However, when we first started, it seemed daunting. purrr....meow!

You should attend the hygiene class that Mama conducted for the kids. Some of the answers were really hilarious...though sad. I am proud of my Mama, OK? purrr...meow!
