Community Project Brings Clean Water to Cameroon
There is an acute clean water shortage in the Sisia neighborhood of Bamenda Town in the Northwest region of Cameroon and surrounding areas. This leads to illness, high infant mortality and an overall reduced standard of living for the citizens who reside there.
New pipes and fencing to facilitate access to clean water from a nearby spring, accessed beneath a rock on the land. Freshly planted trees will help prevent erosion and runoff near the site.
The project provided water to a population of over 5,000, plus neighboring areas. This will help provide better hygiene and prevent future illness from spreading.
“It was amazing to see the community come together to dig the pipeline.
We all participated in the digging and laying of the pipes in the trench.” —Farmer Tantoh, Cameroon Project Manager
