Lucy is a member of the Baroko Womens Group, The World Bank frecently unded a gravity fed water system which travels 5-6km from a fresh spring further up in the mountains to supply clean water to local communities in Panguna. Since the closure of the mine in 1989 one half of the Jaba river has become polluted with heavy metals while the other half of the river has become contaminated from communities upstream and is no longer safe to drink. The  World Bank funded the gravity fed water system which travels 5-6km from a fresh spring further up in the mountains to supply clean water to the communities around in Panguna.
