IN 2018 WE RAISED £12,000, ENOUGH MONEY TO SUPPLY TIABA NYASS, A GAMBIAN VILLAGE, WITH CLEAN RUNNING WATER. WE ALSO PROVIDED FUNDS FOR A SECOND VILLAGE, DOBONG, TO HAVE WATER. NOW WE WANT TO PROVIDE THE MIRACLE OF FRESH WATER TO A THIRD VILLAGE AND WE NEED £12,000 TO BE ABLE TO DO SO. THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS 2019 RAISED £3829.84, SO WE STILL HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO. PLEASE HELP.
The money will provide a deep bore hole, solar powered water pump, for the village. The solar panels will pump the water continually into tanks raised high above the ground, that will then feed water to strategically placed stand pipes around the village. The villagers will dig the trenches for the piping taking the water to the stand pipes. Your donations will pay for the digging of the bore hole, by Water For Africa Gambian staff, using their drilling rig, the building of the tower to house the water tanks, the water tanks themselves, the water pump, its control unit, the stand pipes and all the piping needed. We will oversee the project ourselves, from start to finish. I visited the Gambian supplier of all the equipment being installed and costed the project. No money is being siphoned off for U.K. salaries or offices. No one in Water For Africa U.K. are paid for their work. It is all voluntary. The Water For Africa Gambian staff come from, and their families live, in similar villages in which, Water For Africa have previously installed water pumps. We also intend to remain involved with the villages we assist, to maintain the water pumps and help provide other needed amenities.
PLEASE HELP US TO RAISE THE NECESSARY AMOUNT SO THAT THE LIVES OF HUNDREDS OF MORE CHILDREN WILL BE BLESSED WITH THE HEALTH AND LIFE THAT CLEAN WATER BRINGS.
