Please note: Unfortunately the system does not allow us to translate all the three described need you can donate to above. You can donate for the "Brunnenbau" which is the building of the well itself, "Pumpe, Leitungssystem und Filteranlage" means pump, piping and filtration or for the approvals and tests. We appreciate every donation.
At the moment the drinking water is bought for a high price and comes from a standpost 2km away. It is pumped up to the home by thin plastic lines, which often break.
There it is stored in an aboveground black tank, which is exposed to the sun and is long stale until it is used. Therefore, the water is easily and often germ-infested, which leads to gastrointestinal infections for the children up to a schistosomiosis (a serious possibly fatal illness).
Many children in the home complain about stomach pain after drinking the water and often even have tooth damage due to the unclean drinking water. An own well will always give the home fresh and clean drinking water, as well as the opportunity to sell the excess of water at a fair price to the neighbourhood. This also helps the neighbours and gives the home its own permanent income through the sale of good, clean water.
With a donation, you can help us realize this project!
We need a total of 15.800 € to cover the cost of the well itself, the drilling, the approval and the pumping system.
At the St. Pauls Childrens Home, some 70 children of different ages live together with a couple of employees.
We as a association support this home where we can and we guarantee that 100% of the donations are actually used for the project.
