We are very excited to announce the completion of an important project!
To help the village’s
critical issue of water supply, Mende and her husband coordinated a
project with us and the Nuba diaspora to install an extra water pump.
The normal situation is for water to be “hand-pumped” from an
underground well. This is inefficient, time consuming and hard labour. To
improve the situation, solar panels were installed to provide power
to an electric pump during the day; a generator is used at night.A
rectangular brick structure was built as a reservoir from which the
water flows out to a variety of valves and taps.
In the videos you will see the apparatus constructed and then being used for the first time. There is also a celebration with singing and dancing as the people in the village show their appreciating and happiness; they are very greatful for this blessing that will make a difference in their everyday life.
