A new well is being constructed for the Care Compassion Children's Home and their local community in Kenya.
Our implementer in the field filed this initial report (edited for clarity):
Care Compassion Children's supports orphaned children of HIV infected parents and other affected children in Vihiga. The home keeps 50 orphans and also runs an outreach programme for the vulnerable children within Vihiga district. It’s registered with the Ministry of Social Services as a children's charitable organization
Current Water Source
It relies on water catchment (seen below) that is not enough to take care of the children. They are forced to walk2 km to the stream that serves the whole
community and during dry season it dries up.
It has a population of 50 children staying there and 6 staff attached to the children. The surrounding community has a population of over 800 members.
The management committee in place would oversee the running of the drilled water.
