The project was to deepen the borehole at St. Joseph the Worker Home for the Mentally Challenged.

Charles reports:

The project has been completed, and the borehole is fully functional. A local craftsman was commissioned and he deepened the hole from 32 meters to 40 meters. It will no longer run dry during the dry season.

Sr. Josephat Lihavi, Administrator for St. Joseph the Worker Home for the Mentally Challenged & Epilepsy, reports:

Project funds were used to purchase materials, including steel casements, pipe and fittings, cement, nails, wire, and sand, and to transport the materials. They also paid for the skilled labor for deepening the hole and doing the concrete work.

Future projects include a water pump and treatment pump, and the digging of another well for the farm sector, including the greenhouse, dairy, piggery, and general farming.

We thank you for your contribution to revive the dilapidated borehole, which was broken and filled with loose sand from the side walls. We thank you and wish you good health and many of God’s blessings.

Water Charity wishes to thank Charles and the administration of the home for completing this important project. We are still accepting donations.
