In Gunungkidul, Indonesia, the Minister of Defense, Prabowo Subianto, inspected the installation of clean water pipes in Kalurahan Banyusoco to address the clean water crisis facing the community. This assistance, provided by the Ministry of Defense and the Defense University of Indonesia, aims to help locals facing water scarcity, especially during the dry season.

The clean water pipe aid program is crucial for agricultural irrigation, with the water flow reaching 15 liters per second, sufficient to supply all 82 tanks in the area. This program is expected to enable the community to harvest up to three times a year, compared to once a year previously.

The water source in Kalurahan Banyusoco originates from a cave in the area, with work currently underway on 16 clean water source points in the Cave to irrigate about 7,400 hectares of agricultural land. Minister Prabowo had also inaugurated 11 clean water source points in Gunungkidul and Bantul in August 2023.

Overall, the Unhan RI Water Task Force has discovered water sources and built clean water installations in over 130 locations across Indonesia, benefiting regions such as West Nusa Tenggara, Yogyakarta, West Java, Southwest Maluku, and Banten throughout 2023. The inauguration event was attended by various TNI and Unhan officials, emphasizing the importance of clean water access for communities in need.
