Well - almost finished, end JulyThis major costly project will provide water for growing crops and for the boys to wash.

A generous donation from a charitable trust enabled digging to start in December 2013.

By April 2014 there was a big hole 45ft deep - still dry because of a serious drought.

The money ran out in June 2014 by which time the depth had reached 50ft. Happily, further generous support enabled digging to continue and the building of a security wall to be started.

Good rains arrived in the autumn of 2014 and the well filled with water.  But the security wall building had to stop because of lack of funds.

Further generous support in 2015 has enabled the outstanding debts to the well diggers and the builder to be settled and the final stages of building restarted.
