ACTNews, RAKHINE – The Rohingyas in Rakhine face difficulties in accessing clean water amid struggling against repressive military actions. In that area, people cannot afford to borehole wells.

Global Wakaf-ACT through Waqf Well program built a tube well in Nga Pwint Gyi Village, Rakhine.  The construction of the well started from April 5 to 20, involving six volunteers. Near the Waqf Well, there is a cemented place that can be used to collect water and washing. This Waqf well can be accessed for 50 families or 250 people around the area.

“The wells built are tube wells or shallow wells. Hopefully, this well can be used by the residents to meet their daily water needs,” said Firdaus Guritno from ACT’s Global Humanity Response team.[]
