  1. With so many people struggling after cyclone Winston, why weren’t local contractors awarded the contract to build these stands? Seems like a lost opportunity to increase the effect of aid.

    • Good point! We used local contractors in the past and the cost limited the number of Safe Water Stations we could build. This technique is saving the project money – resulting in more Safe Water Stations for more families. We will try to work out a plan to involve local contractors again in the future.
