There are over 74 impoverished rural villages in Kota Belud, Sabah, home to 110,000 people.
Over 50% these rural communities grapple with water scarcity.
This deepens the cycle of poverty spanning generations.
These difficulties stem from:
Rural Geographical Challenges
Rural Population Growth Strains Water Supply
Absence of Public Water Access
Deteriorating Old Water Pipelines
The Impact of Rural Water Scarcity:
1. Inability to perform essential daily tasks, even drinking, resulting in long-term hardships, particularly for children and the elderly.
2. Inefficient agricultural activities, leading to families' food insecurity.
3. Reliance on unclean water sources, risking diseases.
4. Families have to travel to purchase bottled water, imposing additional financial burdens.

Make An Impact Today
Our humble team aims to extend our impact to more local rural communities, especially to suffering villages who approach us for water supply assistance. Our primary obstacle lies in funding to support personnel for site assessments, community engagement, solution development, material procurement, project supervision, and post-project assistance.
Stable water access is vital for improving rural livelihoods. Hopes Malaysia has extensive expertise in gravity water projects, understanding the significance of sustainable clean water for families.
These water connections support more than just crucial everyday needs, they open opportunities for vegetable cultivation and fish farming, enhancing life sustainability.
