Field report - first quarter

Dirty water source - Onura sub village
Dirty water source - Onura sub village

With the coming donations this project will be receiving through GlobalGiving, HOPEOFIRIHA will construct two water pumps. One water pump will be located at the primary school reaching over 300 children who are currently have no water at school yard, and other water pump will be in the village centre so that it benefits all women. In addition, the project will expand its work into deeper communities, providing clean water to villages that are having no water sources.

Still in Onura village Sudan there are healths problems such as parasites, bacterial infections and diarrhea which have been traced to drinking water from the dirty river. Last February the village invited a health care official to check the river that the villagers are drinking. He found that the river is polluted with bacteria from human waste and dirty thing like (clothes, mopes, rags...) that villagers wasted in the river. So the river water that 240 families now are using is not safe to drink.

We look forward that you continue to support this cause until the project is fully funded and field reports will be posted to our supporter through GlobalGiving.

Thanks for your support!
