Twenty-three Orang Asli Temuan households at Kampung Orang Asli Air Kuning now have access to clean water supply thanks to an initiative by Allianz Malaysia and Build For Tomorrow. Through the initiative, the village located on the outskirts of Taman Botani Negara, Shah Alam is now equipped with a solar-powered water system that will serve the needs of the 86 residents there. The installed water system is made up of a water pump, solar panels, two 4,000 litre water tanks, three 1,500 litres sub-tanks and distribution pipes and is able to collect both rainwater and water from the well that is safe for drinking. “We are very happy to partner Build For Tomorrow in helping to build resilient communities in Malaysia. This was a very important initiative that focuses on underserved communities such as the Orang Asli. We hope that through this initiative the community will enjoy an improved daily living with access to clean water that is safe for drinking,” said Ng Siew Gek, Head of Allianz4Good of Allianz Malaysia Berhad. Previously, Allianz4Good has partnered with Build For Tomorrow in 2016 to build Malaysia’s first Eco Friendly Self Sustaining House in Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan for the Orang Asli from the Temuan community.
