Foochows have been collecting rain water for all purposes since 1903 in Sarawak. It is free and it is a good thing to do.
People should continue to collect rain water.
The photo shows the Penans in Ulu Belaga where they are forced to collect rain water because it is the only source of clean water. The river water from the Malim is too polluted now for drinking and cooking. Even for washing of clothes the people have to think twice. Only during certaintimes of the year will the river water be clean for a while.
Pesticides, erosion, etc pollute the river water.
We thank God He sends rain.
