During the last period the Management of Better Family Foundation (BFF) was invited to solve a conflict between the Water Management Committee of Fundong-Mentang-Ngwainkuma and Bainjong Water Management Committee and its caretaker.
The caretaker of this water scheme has not been given his monthly renumeration for about four years due to the deepening Anglophone socio-political crisis in the area in Cameroon. As a consequence, the caretaker recently refused to do his maintenance work on the pipeline and the whole water scheme was affected by leakages leading to water shortages and doubtful quality of water in these communities.
The Water Management Committee unable to handle the situation, invited the Management of Better Family Foundation to help intervene and solve the problem. BFF authority, invited all the stakeholders and held a crisis meeting and the issue was resolved. The communities decided to borrow some money from a microfinance organization in order to regularise the renumeration situation of the caretaker. The caretaker was then satisfied and decided to go back to work. BFF on its part helped to pay the transportation of all the invited delegates to the meeting.
