Samples are taken regularly and allow engineers to know if the drilling point is favorable for finding water

After the wait, the reward!

Water gushes out for everyone's happiness!

Children use it to have fun

The next step is to introduce

the PVC tubes, taking care to put the tubes with holes at the level where the water was found

Each tube is screwed to the previous one before being pushed deeper

Between the end of the drilling, October 2015, and the installation of the manual pump, a few months will pass. Time to make the purchase and build the concrete base, the protective enclosure and the laundry. In April took place the inauguration and the panel mentioning Elewa Africa, as well as Jack Guberan Foundationmay have been laid.
