Semi built work on dam
Dear Supporters, Friends and Family of Serendipity Healthcare Foundation,
The last you heard from us, the good people of Gadan were also raising funds to build a Sand Dam as an additional source of water supply for their community to tide them over during the dry season. The survey has been concluded and a site was chosen by the water steering committee members that will serve the entire community in a central location.
Work has commenced on this laudable project in the community as a form of water preservation using sand dam and the community has also contributed manpower to help. It is at its initial stage of construction however the community members have been so eager that they have started sourcing for water at the site. Water purifiers were distributed to the women collecting water at the site to safeguard against the emergence of water borne diseases.
We are proud to report that we were able to rehabilitate a hand pump that was installed by the state government 30 years ago but had previously stopped working again due to a major technical fault.
A visit to the Primary Healthcare Centre showed a reduction in the rate of water borne diseases in the outpatient department last month from 5 in 10 cases to 3 in 10 cases as a result of improvement of hygiene practices by the community.
We are really appreciative of all the support, love and passion You our supporters have shown to the children of Gadan and for this we say THANK YOU!!Much work is still to be done but having come this long way, we are happy to have achieved all this; we encourage you to still give us your support and to promote our project in any and every way you can.
