Mbinudita West and East, Dry and Wet

September 7, 2020
Mbinudita school hill apart from being the divider of the eastern and western parts of Mbinudita, the hill is also a kind of fortress separating the area with abundant water sources and dry areas. Why did the dry camp form and the abundant water stronghold even though they were still in the same village, namely Mbinudita Preparation Village? That afternoon, as usual to check on the progress of school construction, a friendly Sumba staff visited Mbinudita Village. At that time, he was supervising the process of lifting the foundation stones to the school construction area. When they arrived at the village, the children looked very shabby and quite dirty. Not only were his clothes unclean, but his face was also stained and his hair was tangled dry. After being questioned, it turned out that water was very difficult to obtain in the area and it had become commonplace when children did not bathe for days. It is very difficult for them to get access to clean water, they have to walk across rocky roads and rice fields to reach a spring which is 1.5 kilometers from their village.

After being questioned, it turned out that water was very difficult to obtain in the area and it had become commonplace when children did not bathe for days. It is very difficult for them to get access to clean water, they have to walk across rocky roads and rice fields to reach a spring which is 1.5 kilometers from their village. In addition to walking, sometimes they ride horses or buffalo so they can bring water in jerry cans to their house.

For more than five years, the source of water in Padiratana Village is a 16 meter deep well and in Wondenu Village is a 32 meter deep well which is a dozen years old, both of which are wells dug manually by local residents in mutual cooperation. Now, the water discharge that has risen is very little and it is also very cloudy and sometimes even black.

For years, the residents of the eastern part of Mbinudita Village have had difficulty accessing clean water, while in the western part of the village there is abundant water to irrigate the rice fields. In addition to the availability of electricity, easy access to clean water is the desire of Mbinudita residents.
