Working together to achieve clean water in three more villages
October 23 2013
We received the following report from the company who are assisting with the installation at Kerr Wally.
“Since we started a couple of months back we have been making a lot of progress, we started with the trench digging and it went very successfully due to the co-operation of the three villages. The trench digging was done alongside the pipe laying with the plumbers and our supervisor. At the same time the trenches were back filled. We had some little delay due to the fact that we are dealing with farmers and we understood they had to continue working their own land, this is normal. Otherwise it is progressing smoothly. Currently the soakaways are complete and the stand tap concrete finished and just minor plumbing and fittings are to be completed. We expect completion of all of this distribution by November. “Ebrima, Essiem Solar Energy” reported.
The next stage is the 25mt3 Storage Tank which is £12,000 stg and we have £6000 in the bank from donations and jewellery sales. Maybe you can help us complete this stage of the project which will help to give another three small villages (combined pop.1,800) a Clean Water supply for the next 20+ years. Total cost of the whole project averages out at only £30 per person.
The final stage is the Solar Panels (36 mt2), Inverter & Submersible Pump, another £15,500, which we hope to complete in first half of 2014.
