In 2019, remote village Kampung Podos in Kota Belud, Sabah, saw an upgrade in its piped water system. Since then, village chief Soumin Sadah, 51, has not had to worry about water scarcity for his family of 10.

The pipe upgrade was made possible thanks to Kota Kinabalu-based non-governmental organisation Hopes Malaysia, with RM42,000 in financial support from Star Foundation.
