Metap is a rural area located in Bafou village in Cameroon West region. In this area, there are about 300 children, 02 primary schools and 01 secondary school for more than 500 inhabitants. But these rural populations do not have drinking water and are more and more exposed to contaminated water diseases.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Metap and its surrounding populations used to have water from natural springs. But climate changes and longer dry seasons of this past 03 years have consequently dried up almost all the natural springs. The absence of drinking water has increased in 03 years the number of unsafe water illnesses victims such as typhoid and dysentery. Here, cholera pandemic which has returned and has already killed more than 400 in Cameroon in year 2011 is a permanent risk.
