I Komang Jati lives with his wife, dan dua anak mereka di dusun Darmaji, Desa Ban. Mereka menunggu untuk konstruksi dimulai pada fasilitas toilet dan kamar mandi pertama mereka. Pada kunjungan baru-baru ini EBPP, kami meminta beberapa pertanyaan untuk mempelajari lebih lanjut tentang akses mereka ke air, and their motivations for building a toilet.
Why do you want to build a toilet?
“Because we want to keep our environment clean. We usually defecate in our garden, sekitar 60-80 metres from the house”.
Where do you get water from?
“In the dry season we walk two kilometres to Pancoran spring. We must go twice a day to collect water.
“Right now it is wet season, so our cubang (rain water tank) has some water in it, which we use to bathe, wash clothes, and give to the animals”.
Ni Wayan Pasek is the wife of I Komang Jati. She is originally from Manikaji Pucak hamlet, but moved to Darmaji when she married Komang eight years ago.
Do you go to the EBPP Posyandu (infant and maternal health monthly health check ups)?
“Yes, every month. I have learnt how to care for my children if they get sick with a fever or diarrhoea”.
Have either of your children been sick recently?
“Yes, my eldest son was sick with diarrhoea three weeks ago. I gave him oralit (water with sugar and salt), like I learnt at Posyandu, and he felt better the next day”.
