UPDATE: CLEAN WATER FOR NKOPE HILL MISSION

UPDATE: CLEAN WATER FOR NKOPE HILL MISSION 1

The borehole

The borehole in the picture serves the medical centre and the local community of around 6000 people. There is a pump bringing water from the lake into a couple of tanks at the health centre but only one tank is working and the water is not clean. Even water from the borehole is not safe to drink.

The blind school unit.

The blind school unit has its own tap in the yard, but it supplies lake water that is only fit for washing and boiling. The 40 blind and low sighted girls and boys have to collect water from the lake when the tank unit dries up.

This young boy spent ages filling up his large, heavy canister and tried so hard to load it onto his bike. Around 6000 villagers use this borehole at Nkope and some walk up to 2 kilometers to fetch water.

A family walking up from the lake where they had been washing themselves and their clothes.

UPDATE: CLEAN WATER FOR NKOPE HILL MISSION 5

This is Stan Maganga, the Medical Assistant in charge of the Nkope Health Centre. We will soon have a short video clip of him explaining why the proposed new water system is vital for the future of the health centre and health of the community.

UPDATE: CLEAN WATER FOR NKOPE HILL MISSION 6

This is the site where the large new tank will be sited. It will be high enough for the water to reach the secondary school about half a mile or so on the edge of the village.

It feels beautiful to read about the breakthroughs for what feels like insurmountable breakdowns in the human race. To experience what is possible through the kind and empathetic organization of people is important. Thank you for the many ways that you have created to connect with others and be of service. Inspiring, touching and moving.
