Water is one of the most important and common liquids on our planet. Whether it’s for cooking, drinking or showering, water is an essential part of our everyday lives.
Although we consume water everyday, how much do we really know about it? The ocean, the world’s largest body of water, is one of the world’s biggest mysteries. To date, the ocean is largely unexplored, with some estimating that approximately only five percent has been explored.
With that in mind, how much do you know about water? Test your knowledge with this quick quiz and maybe learn some new facts along the way.
While many of us have easy access to water, there are many who aren’t able to access water as easily. We don’t have to look too far for these people at all – there are many remote Orang Asli villages in Malaysia that do not have any access to clean water supplies.
The Orang Asli living in remote villages have to rely on wells, nearby rivers and mountain for drinking, cooking and other household chores. Sometimes, even that may not be enough as they may encounter problems like heavy water usage by nearby plantations that decreases their water supplies.
Wanting to help the Orang Asli community, Coway Malaysia recently collaborated with the Department of Orang Asli Development (JAKOA) to carry out its first instalment of a long-term corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative called Happy Water Project.
The aim of the project is to provide 1,000 Orang Asli families across Malaysia with access to clean water within five years.
As part of their initiative, Coway reached out to help 327 residents from 73 Orang Asli families living in the remote area of Kampung Sungai Tiang, Cameron Highlands.
Coway installed rainwater harvesting systems that are specially designed and developed to offer ease of use, complete with a pump to accommodate water usage in the mountain. The systems are also easy to use without the need to rely on skilled labour.
Over the next five years, Coway will continue to collaborate with JAKOA to help provide the Orang Asli villages with access to clean water.
