Water problems in Samoa's tsunami zone still unresolved

Some villages in Samoa affected by last year's tsunami say they are still experiencing water problems.

Some victims, who spoke to the Weekend Observer, say drinking water is rationed carefully.

Ulutogia resident, Levasa Vaega, said the Samoa Water Authority truck visits once a week.

The village has water tanks distributed by Red Cross but they have to wait for the water truck to come by and fill it.

Fa'animo Togitasi, a mother of three, said her children sometimes go two days without showering because there's no water.
