Request: Water borehole pump - £4000
The current water supply is a deep 30m hand dug well which is over 70 years old. It now supplies very little water and is often very stagnant. It is a long way to the next water source, so the community make use of this unsafe water as much as they can.
Ghana Outlook has previously placed a community aqua filter here to help provide clean safe water. This was always a temporary measure, and a water borehole is now required, a mechanized one being the preferred type. Cost £4000
