Silia

We installed a pump in the area five years ago, but in 2017 the well collapsed due to heavy rains. As people were used to drinking safe and clean water from a pump, they decided to dig another well and reported to our office to ask for assistance to install another pump for them. Without hesitation, we again went there and installed a pump. Now they are happy again as they will be drinking safe and clean water. Still more they are asking seeds to start planting trees. They wish WfZ all the best. 

The pictures show the pump installation team on their way to install the pump and the previous source of water for the villagers.
