As the Western Division continued to face the dry spell, a church in Lautoka yesterday thanked Gov­ernment for coming to its aid.

Wati Savou, a resident of Tuvu in Lau­toka, acknowledged the Government for looking out for those in need.

In this case, it was the timely delivery of water to the church that she is a caretaker of.

The Jerusalem Fellowship Church has members who come from different back­grounds and ethnicities.

The 37-year-old caretaker said the dry spell left major water sources in their area dry, therefore prompting its members to start conserving each drop of water.

“We cannot use the well water because it has turned quite salty,” she said.

Ms Savou said it worried her because there was no water left in the tanks at the church.

“I was worried because there was no wa­ter,” she said.

“But I was really happy after the Fiji Wa­ter Authority distributed water to us,” she said.

She said that the dry spell also proved damaging to the plants and livestock.

“Now everything in church goes normal and we are really happy about it,” she said.

Ms Savou also said that the love and to­getherness of the different ethnicities un­der one roof was a major driver towards communal success.

“It’s a very good thing that we are work­ing together,” she said.

For now, Ms Savou is hopeful that it rains in the Western Division as the Central Di­vision has already started experiencing heavy rainfall.
