The Phase II Bitung IDP Resettlement Project commenced in June, 2012. The project is assisting 106 Internally Displaced Person (IDP) households relocate to a new plot of land with secure land tenure, permanent housing and appropriate water and sanitation facilities. In addition, the project will support vocational skills training for selected community members, as well as the formation and training of a community cooperative.
It has been exciting quarter for the project, with first foundations being laid and construction underway on 35 houses.
We at Communities for Communities have been fund raising for the past year and will do so for the next year and hope to complete our contribution towards this project.
With events such as Golf Days, Trivia Nights, Cinema in the Park, Women’s Luncheons and our famous Carols in the Park we are on track to fulfil our obligations of $220,000.
We also receive generous donations from our communities and companies in Sydney that feel as strongly as we do about making sure that these 106 families have a safe community, also safe and well built homes with electricity and clean water.
The families of this community also work on the project and put in what is called sweat equity which is their way of contributing to their homes and also making this project sustainable for other families in the area.
We thank you for your generosity in purchasing one or more of the Cleanwater filter kits to provide each of these 106 families with the fresh water they deserve every day. Cleanwater ensures wellbeing through natures ultimate and absolute daily necessity – clean healthy drinking water.
In addition If you would like to make a donation towards this project you can also visit our website and make a tax deductable donation. There you will find out more about the variety of overseas projects that our community in Canada Bay are involved in helping.
