In accordance with its commitment to distribute water throughout the archipelago, through the Rucika CSR program, PT. Wahana Duta Jaya Rucika supported the construction of a clean water pipeline network in Umutnana village, East Nusa Tenggara on January 9-14 2018.
Rucika CSR Collaborates with Solar Chapter
In collaboration with an organization founded by Indonesia’s young generation – Solar Chapter, Rucika CSR is moved to contribute in the form of Rucika Black pipes with a diameter of 90 mm with a total length of ± 1000 m to be used as a water distribution network from embung to the village through hilly areas. Limited water resource infrastructure makes it difficult for around 700 residents in Umutnana village to get clean water and have to make uphill and steep trips to springs outside the settlement at least 4 times with a distance of approximately 2km, time that should be used for studying or earning money.
The Rucika CSR Program Inspires Indonesia’s Young Generation
The enthusiasm of the villagers of Umutnana, Malacca district, was reflected when the Rucika Black pipe came, men and women took part in carrying pipe rolls and digging the ground for the installation of water channels. With this program, the community is getting closer to water, “We are very pleased with this program and can work with the younger generation to provide Rucika Black clean water pipes which have strong, elastic characteristics also suitable for areas with uneven contours such as hills. Hopefully, this can inspire the younger generation and other companies to work together in helping others, “said Putra Wijaya, CCS Senior Manager of PT Wahana Duta Jaya Rucika.
Impact of Clean Water for Life
Clean water not only has an impact on the future of the children, but also has an impact on the needs of the whole village. If water is easily available, irrigation in the village will be better so that it can improve the quality of life for the whole village. Water for most residents in urban areas is a necessity, but for rural communities, clean water is still a luxury. As a company that is committed to providing total solutions for piping systems and flowing water far away, PT. Wahana Duta Jaya Rucika hopes to continue to do similar things in the future.
