“Agua de Vida” / Western Province, Papua New Guinea / November 2014

Aside from providing a vital transportation network with other villages and urban centers, the Fly River and its tributaries is the main source of water for household use (bathing, cooking, washing clothes and household utensils) among riverside villages.  Just like in many remote places in Papua New Guinea, the need for proper potable water sources remains an issue in this part of the country.
