FAMILIES IN RURAL KOTA BELUD COMMUNITIES ARE STRUGGLING TO LIVE WITHOUT CLEAN WATER
Rural communities in Sabah are facing a crisis, with families barely surviving without the basic life need of clean water. This is a common issue in the over 74 remote poverty-stricken villages of Kota Belud, as most of these villagers are cut-off from the public water supply. Underprivileged families find it a challenge to live each day without enough water for themselves, especially their many children.
Only relying on unsustainable streams, broken piping or rain harvesting for little water, this life-threatening issue causes isolated families to lack proper water supply for their daily activities at home and on their farms, making rural life much more challenging than it already is.

Results With Hopes Malaysia’s Gravity Water Systems
Over 50 kilometres or piping connects our natural gravity water systems to remote rural families and villages.
To ensure lasting sustainable impact, we always thoroughly assess a village’s water supply issue and plan with the villagers for the most efficient solution.
The villagers are empowered with means to connect and maintain the system for long-term ownership over their efforts and assets.
The systems 100% rely on gravity force, bringing proven results as due to low maintenance but high resistance in the long-run.
Families utilise this free unlimited water supply for their daily home needs, crop and fish farming. Improving their livelihoods through sustainable living.
