Hi, I'm setting out on a long trip down through Africa riding a motorbike to raise money for Multihelp Trust Orphanage who care for 30 orphaned children aged between 4 and 16 years in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe. Their current water borehole collapsed, and so they’re using a temporary borehole which is not adequate enough. Water is limited, their gardens have all dried up, and they’re relying solely on small donations and the generosity of 2 volunteer care mothers who look after the big family.
What needs to be done?
A new more substantial borehole is needed that will give them far better access to water allowing them to restart their gardening activities, allowing them to sell the produce and make the orphanage self sustaining.
Equipment needed: 40m borehole, solar powered water pump and a large water tank will allow them to irrigate the land and drastically increase the cycle of vegetable production. The whole project is expected to cost around $6500, so please donate generously. I’ll be stopping by the Orphanage on my route to Cape Town to help work on the installation.
Thanks for your support
