“Rebekah Poni is a resident of Mundu, opposite the house of Hon. Deputy Governor’s home in Mundu, Kupera County. Poni is staying alone while her children and grandchildren are in a refugee camp. She remained behind to take care of the farm and maintain the buildings. When the borehole broke, getting clean water became an everyday battle for the community. Thank God for the current peaceful coexistence in Kupera that allowed the repair crew to restore the boreholes. Now life is healthy simply because the communities drink from a clean source. No more common sicknesses as it use to be when people were drinking from unclean water points. Poni is grateful for the service rendered by water Is Basic.”
This project was undertaken as part of our campaign of projects that actively reduce carbon emissions. This project helped the community save their much needed wood which was previously being burnt daily to boil water. This project has also eliminated the many thousands of hours previously spent on walking to collect water.
