Herminal progress

Allocating labor among the community
Allocating labor among the community

As of July 20, the main part of the system is implemented, i.e. water is being pumped to the tank in Herminal, were people can fetch water much more easily than down the mountain where the pump is.

See the pictures and details in the report posted below.

Unfortunately, the regional government hasn't been able to deliver any funding for the distribution network to the 5 tap stands distributed through the community.

Thanks to our donors for your contribution.

If we receive a few more donations, we hope to be able to complete the distribution piping. Could you or your friends help us?

Thanks again
