Re: Letter of appreciation for drilling and rehabilitation of handpump

Dear Sir,

Project Summary

The community depends on one drilled well for the entire community. The old Indian Mark II is usually under constant pressure leading to quick wear and tear. The long queue always leads to frustration among the women and children. This usually led to fight among them. With frequent breakdown of the handpump, they often resort to the open streams and rivers. Presently, Bwolo is one of the communities under threat of insecurity which constitute great risk to women as kidnappers often trail people into isolated locations.

The old pump was replaced with a new AFRIDEV pump. A new well was also drilled. This has brought so much joy to the community as they freely jubilated and expressed their joy.
