Thanks to a donation from a foundation in the Netherlands the CO Foundation was able to drill a borehole in Kitase. After drilling to an unbelievable depth of 115 meters (!) the pump is now bringing potable water 24/7. We constructed a tank which is supplying a community tap in the area while at the same time providing running water in several homes. When additional funds become available we plan to build a higher tank so that more areas of Kitase can be reached with enough pressure to open several taps in different places in the community.
It is still a miracle to see that after years of struggling we now have access to as much water as we need without additional costs. A major step towards building a better environment for the local people of Kitase.
