Geophysics are on their way, the drill rig isn’t far behind and Ashanti Development has been given funding for boreholes in four new villages, all badly in need of clean water. We’re also funding latrines and hygiene in the village of Mosi-Kura (trans: Mosi’s Home), a community of settlers from Burkina Faso driven south by climate change. We called in last week and were told that their stream had completely dried up and they were having to collect water from another stream, five miles away. Mosi-Kura’s exceptionally lucky, as we’ve re-allocated one of our four boreholes to them. Luckily we hadn’t told the other village that we intended to give them a borehole but even so somehow or other we must try to make good their loss.
In memory of Seth, who for many years was our good and hard-working caretaker. He died last week and we are all so sad to have lost him.
