Far from everywhere

10th May 2020

People were extremely happy to see us installing the pump in the village. It is the first time the village hs had good and safe water. Before they just dug small ponds were they have been drawing water for cooking and drinking. The installation was enjoyable and pictures were taken. People in the area do farming; they grow cassava and many crops to eat. Many of them are willing to plant more trees this coming season. Roads leading to the village are poor and the hospital is far from the village.
