A new water supply project on a Vanuatu island is now providing safe water to 2000 people on the island of Malo.

The 44 kilometres of pipeline, opened this week, cost $US1.7 million dollars to install.

It has been a multi party exercise involved the Vanuatu government, World Vision, the New Zealand aid programme and UNICEF.

The UNICEF chief of field office in Vanuatu, Andrew Parker,  told Don Wiseman it will supplement their existing supplies.
