HUNDREDS of people in Enga’s Kompiam district will soon benefit from a water supply project.
The K700,000 water supply and sanitation project, jointly funded by the European Union (EU) and the Baptist Union of Papua New Guinea in Kompiam, will be completed next month.
Five villages and institutions in Kompiam station will benefit.
Jerry Kulimbao, a villager who was involved in the project, said the last stage was yet to be completed but all work should be done by Feb 15.
He said each household would have a tap for drinking and washing.
He said it would benefit more than a 1,000 people.
Kulimbao said people in the community were happy with the project and had contributed K100 per household towards it and helped by doing some of the site work themselves.
“There are other services here to benefit from but this project will benefit our generations to come and will improve our lifestyle,” he said.
Kulimbao said the Baptist Union PNG and EU had done a lot for the district with the first water and sanitation project at Kompiam High School and the surrounding community.
