Money to drill and mechanise a borehole at Mpantuase was raised by M. Pierre Petitjean of Switzerland. He switched on the water a few days ago, and it is now available to the community.
Mr Petitnean first visited the villages when he was working for a Swiss donor, BasAid, who sent him to inspect the projects they’d given us funding for. He found them all in good order, and really liked the area – as well as having confidence in Nicholas to carry things out. Now he plans to build a pump caretaker room, store and shed.
Mpantuase village used to reproach us for not remembering them. Let’s hope they’ve changed their tune.
