Since we last updated you, construction on the health clinic water system that you helped to fund has been completed! The clinic is located in a community called Kawaye , which is in the Maradi region of Niger. Prior to the drilling of this borehole well and installation of the mechanized, solar-powered system, people in Kawaye  did not have any access to safe water, relying on shallow open wells that were frequently contaminated.

Now, not only does the village have a safe water well right in their community, but the clinic has running water! That means that laboring mothers don't have to bring their own water to their deliveries. It means that health care professionals can wash their hands and instruments between patients. It means that giving birth in Kawaye is now a joyful experience, not a life-threatening one.

Unfortunately, in light of recent security issues in the region, we canceled our February trip to Niger out of an abundance of caution. Sadly, that means that we don't yet have photographs or stories from beneficiaries for you, but we will have more to share in the next report!

As always, thank you for your compassion in action.

Warmly,

Kate

Thanks to the incredible support of our donors and the GlobalGiving community, we have successfully raised the $50,000 necessary to fund a solar-powered water system for a health clinic in rural Niger, the poorest country in the world according to the 2019 UN Development Report.

Construction of the system began in October and is expected to be competed in February, 2020. The healthcare facility receiving the water system is located in the Chadakori commune in the Maradi region of Niger. We are sending a team to Niger in February and plan to see the new system in action and capture some photos and video to share with you!
