Conclusion of Kerr Ardo Well Repair Project – The Gambia

Water Pumps - The GambiaThis project has been completed under the technical direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Mallory Pohlman. To read about the beginning of this project, CLICK

Mallory informs us that, with the repair of 5 pumps, the community now has 6 working water pumps! The funding first went toward those pumps needing major repairs, while additional spare parts were used to fix the remaining pumps.

The parts purchased included pump repair kits, handles, handle bearings chains, and a supporting plate.

The Village Community Development Committee provided the costs of labor and transportation, plus a small amount for the materials.

Mallory expressed her gratitude, as well as the thanks of the entire village, to
Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust
for providing the funding for this project.
