2:35 pm
a lot that they've been able to take but you know she's considered is that you know is that he. she and she is a day off or despite the fact that she still hasn't got justice from trouble and even institutions have i.d.'s for societies that she is she is. going to respect and people you know really. you know isn't he doing it all by leonie by. what would you say needs to change in pakistan through and show all that want more thought of my went through nobody else has to go through. so there are two teams obviously first of all late she was in there you know on the order of the local guy but just been giant she was you know she was ordered to be gained weight so i think we need to get to they don't like that better legislation systems you know if this inflow of the education system which

a severe shortage of water on the west and he has four sites in manila began to run dry off for the start of the dry season you have this month but the city's water supply is say that is only part of the problem it's a lack of infrastructure as well residents are having to corporate severe rationing with no water warning that the city could face up to twenty one hours a day without more time for the next three months some people have to resort to filling buckets with water from fire engines. and let's get more on this from the doubles and the santos who's joining me from manila now and a good to see you know this water shortage the few talking about has been ongoing for weeks has the situation at all improved. the situation has only slightly improved and by that i mean that residents at least now don't have to line up for hours to get water ration by fire trucks or scoop it out from the swimming pool water has begun flowing from the taps but only for a few hours
2:38 pm
a day leaving many residents still with no choice but to spend precious time collecting water that's just sounds like a terrible way to apply one of the basic necessities of life and as i understand it you spoken to residents what of they've been telling you how they're coping. i spoke to the residents of monday lujan which is one of the hardest hit areas and some of them are angry some of them are resigned but the rest all of them are just really tired of having to wait for water one resident mr cherry daria told me that at the height of the crisis he spent as much as four hours a day after work to wait in line to get water from a fire truck now he gets water from his tap for about two hours in the morning and he collects them there and he says that he wants to consider themselves lucky now because his sibling doesn't have water and has to go to mr john darrius house every day to take a back this is unimaginable thinking about this happening in a meadow metropolis like manila but what just goes to situation to become so bad.
2:39 pm
i think it is part of the problem the rest that this is a mega city. the water authorities and the water service providers do not have adequate infrastructure to support the growing population of the city so immediately what they need to do is start looking for alternative sources of water and improve the existing water infrastructure and meanwhile you know the citizens are just saying that they're joke and help this effort along by praying for rain it appears that the government until total truth concerned with botched not taking this problem c.d.c. enough and looking for targeted for more info when in time there were already predictions of a water shortage and a water crisis from a few years back if current infrastructure was not improved however water authorities were saying that because of certain bureaucratic backlog they weren't
2:40 pm
able to get these water infrastructure improvements up and running and this so the inability to create and improve the existing water infrastructure plus the onset so that as in your phenomenon or the dry spell has really worsen the problem we have seen the water levels and certain them snoring and this is where you get most of the water supply. and i santos reporting for us from the money la thank you very much for that update we're going to a place of play and creativity now that's thriving in the indonesian capital despite choking coffee and initial opposition from local gangstas this open air children's library in jakarta all for children a rare opportunity for reading and learning outside of school. there are no quiet rules at this library it's all about play. reading. and entertainment the shortage of public libraries in jakarta means this

space has become a big hit with the local kids that live there i like it because i love listening to story telling stories are fine we get it's exciting. just a few years ago this fly over was strewn with rubbish and frequented by gangs but then armed with just books paint and green astroturf for the children to sit on the library's organizers got to work several murals and planted boxes later the area's reputation began its transformation. i want to make the image of this area under the bridge more positive to the people. before this place was perceived very negatively but there was a lot of rubbish gangsters were here and made the locals living in the area feel anxious but then we arrived and provided free books because we wanted to bring books closer to the community and that the idea didn't go down well with the locals
2:42 pm
that first parents were afraid their children would be kidnapped or hit by a car and the resident gangs needed persuading to find new turf but it worked and today it's not uncommon to see up to seventy children attending after school sessions. up in the sense of where this place is people who are passing by can start enjoying hand and children can play while also learning. to have been any complaints about the smell the rubbish or the rumble of traffic yet but just in case they use a sound system to drown out the noise. many more such stories on our website. and be sure to check us out of his book as well. i believe you know with a huge inflatable mickey mouse lookalike floating in hong kong's victoria it's
