This project will renovate two water projects in Muyuka Sub-Division. A solar pannel will be used to generate electricity in Bafia. Now, 8,000 people collect from streams and far away taps, paying a high cost. Your donations complement on-going contributions of the community and Reach Out.
The Anglophone Crisis has rendered more than 1.4 Million persons vulnerable and in need assistance. In localities of the interior of Fako like Bafia, water supply network is almost non-functional due to complete absence of maintenance since the start of the conflict, and practices such as open defecation and sourcing water from local springs are common in the forest communities. Bafia is a remote village with a dilapidated earth road that is frequent scenario of armed confrontations.
The main source of potable water in the Bafia community is a borehole realized in the 1990s. Faulty drainage, broken water taps and pipes were repaired by Reach Out in January 2020. However, the engine is dilapidated, and its planned functioning period has doubled. The engine crashed completely early this 2020, and currently the community has no water. This project will contribute to community efforts to provide a solar generator.
After this intervention, the following will be in place: A new and sustainable energy/power supply system, Reinstallation of the pumping system, Rehabilitation of any damage that might have developed as a result of the non-functionality of the system. Restore the proper functioning of the 7 existing taps in the communities Reduction of the distance travelled in search of water in the community. Finally restore the usual 3 cents per 20l container of potable water for all community members.
