The rural farming community was relying on a temporary dug spring located 7km away from the settlement. The spring source was not reliable, especially during the dry season, and unprotected making it high risk for contamination. With no means of storing water or distributing it to the 14 households, the sanitation standard in Cirisobu settlement remained very poor.

The promise of safe drinking water and adequate sanitation has been realised with funding from the FIJI Water Foundation and Rotary club donations.
