Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, we were not able to obtain photographs in 2020. We are working to do that in the first 6 months of 2021, and will post pictures as soon as possible.
The previous main sources of water were shallow wells along the rivers.
Difficulties these villagers faced:
- No safe clean water.
- Water was dirty and people were getting diarrhea. About 25 people this year get diarrhea in 2020 alone.
- Women spend a lot of time at the current water source and they don’t have time to do household chores.
- Families were having problems because most men were suspicious of their wives because they were spending a lot of time at the water source.
- They were sharing water sources with baboons and monkeys.
