The project was to repair the borehole pump.

Kristi reports:

The community hired a mechanic to fix the borehole, which had been broken for 10 years. He found that the pump had been wrongly assembled, which explains the series of broken pieces and serious problems since its installation.

Water Charity funds were used to pay for 3 riser main pipes, 3 s.s. rods, and a fishing tool.

The mechanic also taught members of the community how to maintain the pump.

The community was very thankful for the funding which resulted in the repair of the borehole.

We are grateful to Kristi for completing this project, and again extend our thanks to Kelly Crowdson for providing the funding.
