Default Guy Macon's support helps to build water projects in Western Africa. (death)


In Foutaka, Zambougou (in the southern part of Mali in the Sahel
region of Western Africa) there are 2000 people who do not have
access to clean water or electricity. About half of the village
children die by the age of five due to poor sanitation and
hygiene. It takes the villagers about 10 hours to reach the nearest
hospital in Segou. making the diseases caused by lack of clean
water even more deadly. Mali has been subjected to several
periods of drought that have contributed to starvation.
There is plenty of underground water available, but there are
only a few hand dug wells that were poorly maintained. The
villagers, especially the children, are dying from the
parasite-infested water. Existing wells need to be cleaned and
lined, new wells need to be dug or drilled, water purification
systems and pumps need to be installed, water storage facilities
need to be built, electricity needs to be provided, and the
villagers need to be taught some fundamental of basic hygiene
and sanitation.

A team fro Engineeer Without Borders hasimplemented a series
of engineering solutions in three areas:

(1) Soil Cement Lined Water Basin For Reducing Flooding
Hazards, Benefiting Livestock, and a Community Garden;

(2) Baseline Health Assessment to Evaluate Long-Term Health
Benefits from Project and Identify Follow-up Project;

(3) Pump Repair and Coordination of Drilling to Install
Two New Potable Water Wells.

This small effort helped, but much needs to be done in
Foutaka. Please donate to Engineers Without Borders to
help this important water project. Even a small donation
will bring clean water to many villagers and save many
children from death.
