In the remote Indonesian village of Onohondro, in southern Nias, women have traditionally had to make long treks to carry home small amounts of water. Because of clean water scarcity many children suffered from diarrhea — one of the leading killers of young children in the developing world. Following the 2004 tsunami and 2005 Nias earthquake, ADB provided US$ 20 million to support the installation of clean water and sanitation services in 400 villages in Nias and nearby Aceh. Today, women like Herminwati Hondro need only step outside their door for clean water, and the children of the village are much healthier.
