Water Project

Updated: Mar 17

We have finally managed to get the stand made for the water tank at Honde Valley but all work has come to a standstill as we await funding to sink a borehole, lay pipes and connect the supply to the home. Currently the residents have to walk quite a way to outside showers and ablution block. Some of the elderly are blind and many infirm. The outside showers are literally four walls with no roof and a bucket. The well that they currently source their water from is very low and they survive by getting help from a nearby school who supply water in containers when they can.


Two of the residents suffer from Leprosy and their condition is made worse by not being able to keep up with their hygiene.

The following supplies need to be purchased to complete this water project :
