Red Cross Clinic Water Project – Cameroon

Konye, Konye Sub-division, Meme Division, South West Region, Cameroon

Community Description
The Southwest Region of Cameroon is a province that constitutes part of the territory of Southern Cameroons. The region is divided into six divisions or departments, including Meme, which has a population of over 300,000.

The neighborhood of Konye, in the Konye Sub-division, is made up primarily by farmers. It is plagued with lack of access to safe water.

Problem Addressed
The Cameroonian Red Cross Clinic (no affiliation to the International Red Cross) serves the entire village. The clinic has no direct access to water. The staff currently has to walk 300 meters to a water source that is overcrowded.

Project Description
This project will extend an existing water pipeline and add a tap.

The process will involve digging a trench and laying pipes, and connecting to the water supply. The unskilled work will be done by community members.

A cement base and drain will be constructed by a local technician and the tap will be installed by a local plumber.

Water Charity funds will be used to purchase the materials, including cement, pipe, fittings, and fixtures.

Project Impact
500 people will benefit from the project.
