The purpose of this paper is to give voice to the experiences of some of the women in the Eastern Province who have experienced a change in their water supply from a traditional or unprotected source to a protected water source fitted with a handpump. As the “primary water carriers, managers, end-users and family health educators” (Grekel, 1995), it is crucial that their perspective is heard. The benefits to their lives along with the drawbacks which have been observed must be considered within the planning and implementation of a project which affects such a major portion of their life.
