Montserrado Region Handpump Repair Program – Liberia

Montserrado Region Handpump Repair Program – Liberia

This project is made possible through the partnership of WATER CHARITY and YAI                                                                                        

This is an ongoing project and Water Charity encourages people to donate to this worthy program.

 

 

Location

Montserrado, Liberia

Problem Addressed 

Thousands of Liberians in and around Monrovia (a population of 1.9 million) do not have access to pipe-borne water. NGOs installed hundreds of hand pumps, an expenditure of millions of dollars. Over time, 90% of these pumps have fallen into disrepair, and entire communities no longer have access to safe drinking water. Families have been forced to collect water from creeks, streams, and other unsafe sources, and waterborne diseases are increasing rates of illness and death among children in these communities.

This is an urgent problem developing in and around Liberia’s capital, despite the fact that it costs as little as $300 to repair each broken hand pump.  It is unacceptable that in 2019, communities have to drink unsafe water because they do not have the know-how and the $300 they need to repair their community hand pumps.

Project Description

Water Charity has identified 107 broken hand pumps in Montserrado. Each well repair cost $300 and can serve a community of up to 1,000 households.

To prevent a repeat of the situation where the pumps fail or become inoperable, our team is also training four community volunteers in each location so that they know how to perform regular maintenance and quick repairs. By providing this simple training, WC can ensure that each pump we fix will remain in service for years to come.

This project is already started and a few of the broken hand-pumps have been repaired.

Project Impact

Each well will serve about 1000 people, and there is no where on the planet you can help 1000 people for $150. Water Charity’s 100 repaired wells directly serve 100k people. This amounts to a fairly substantial percentage of the population.

Memorandum of Understanding

There is an agreement between Water Charity and YAI to repair 100 broken hand pumps in Montserrado region of Liberia, and thus to restore water access to a large number of needy people.

Water Charity agrees to adopt this 100 Pump- repair project as a program in YAI Water for Everyone Initiative- Liberia. WC will provide Fifteen Thousand United States Dollars ($15,000 USD) to YAI Funds within 30 days of the date of signing (September 20, 2019) in order to execute this implementation.

Monitoring and Maintenance 

Water Charity has adopted 100 wells that were broken in the Montserrado region of Liberia. WC paid for half of this and YAI is matching the other half in kind, i.e. $30,000 of well repair for $15k.

YAI Executive Director – Dr. L. Weeks

When he was nine, Kimmie came face to face with civil war, human suffering, and death. Dr. Weeks established an International organization called Youth Action International to support the needs of families living in post-war countries. Youth Action International’s programs have benefited more than 200,000 people in six post-war African countries by providing vocational training, rebuilding education systems, providing micro-lending, and encouraging young people to invest in agriculture.

Project Funding

This is an ongoing problem and Water Charity is encouraging people to donate to this worthy program, $300 for a well repair is already a bargain in charity work… also now WC is able to offer donors the opportunity to adopt them at half price.

Individual wells can be adopted for $150 plus 10% for admin or $165 per well.

And Water Charity is asking our donors to help us do more…
Please join us now in helping to completely repair all of them.
