Rwanda Water Well Project
1 WATER WELL BUILT. JULY 2014
The well we built in Rwanda was part of our Ramadhaan Water Wells Appeal 2014. This was an appeal to raise £6000 to build 1 well in 3 different countries - Mozambique, Rwanda and Burundi.
The water well was built in Gikongoro in Southern province of Rwanda. It is a very very poor area. There are majority Muslims in Gikongoro and they are very poor and have no water with constant outbreaks of ebola fever, cholera etc. This area has no access by roads therefore these people have been neglected. It is such a remote area that there are extra costs to transport the digging machinery to this village.
We have been told that tears will flow if you were to see how the Gikongoro people live. Children are dying due to poverty. With the help of Allah, SRF aim to provide clean water for these neglected people.
