Water issues
For all of these families, therein NO WATER SUPPLY and very few functioning toilets. Because it is a very small island, the groundwater is salty; and piped water infrastructure is impossible. Villagers must spend their little earnings on buying precious drinking water from the mainland and transport by boat to the island. This is a very expense for these already poor families.
