To add to the woes, the task should be completed early in the morning.
The Indonesian Water Priest is currently in Italy working as a missionary. He was always disturbed by the sight of the obstacles faced by his fellow people. Tus decided to bring a series of changes. With the help of some of his Italian acquaintances, they structured a girl’s common room. The project was completed within 2012 and was set up at the Waemokel Catholic School.
The Indonesian Water Priest next focused on the need for drinking water. He, along with fundings from the Bolzano administration(Italy), set up pumps, reservoirs & pipes. After one year of hard work, the piping was linked with a spring. The priest seemed very happy to have helped his village.
