More than 1500 households in East Bali will continue to have access to clean water through the Water for Life program as a result of the partnership of Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia (CCAI) and East Bali Poverty Project (EBPP). This program has been supported by CCAI since 2008 by providing clean water to communities in the village of Seraya, East Bali. "Water for Life Program is part of our commitment to the Community, which also serve as one of the pillars in CCAI’s Corporate Social Responsibility, CCAI is committed to build sustainable communities with variety programs that aimed to develop economy, improve the quality of life, and create numerous chances and opportunities," Wanda Harahap, National Corporate Affairs Manager CCAI revealed.
 
David Booth, founder of EBPP, an organization that focuses on self-development programs in the areas of agriculture, education, environment, health, and infrastructure, added, "When EBPP was first established in 1998, 40-60% children in Karangasem suffered from malnutrition and lack of sanitation. By providing clean water, we teach the community about the importance of bathing, washing hands, and clean drinking water. In the future, together with CCAI, we hope to provide more access to clean water to these people who live in seven villages in Karangasem, hoping to improve their quality of life.”
 
For nearly five years, using four water trucks, CCAI has been donating 10,000 liters of water / day to Seraya Village. In addition, CCAI, in collaboration with EBPP, donated 4,000 bottles of AdeS every month to 20-27 health centers in Ban Village. "Lack of clean water could cause variety of problems. Because of its location, East Bali often has difficulty in obtaining clean water. Therefore, CCAI is very pleased to be working with EBPP to help East Bali community,” added Wanda Harahap.
