Lengast in Desperate Need of Water!

Dry Masai Land in the hills behind KIA Kilimanjaro International Airport Thirsty Masai Children laying down and resting Dead Masai Cow without water or enough food to eat the cattle, donkeys, goats, and sheep are dying.

The drought is hitting Tanzania hard now and the people in Lengast Village are suffering. The main pump died the day after the USAID taskforce and staff from Orphans Foundation Fund came to see how the water system could be improved. Over 2000 cattle have died as well as donkeys, goats, and sheep. The people have to walk over 5 miles to get water, which is only enough for themselves and leaves nothing for their livestock or gardens. The situation is very serious and the people are desperate for water and food. Although these are trying economic times for all, please consider making a donation to help those in Lengast Village.

USAID Lengast Water system update

Several years ago USAID installed a water system for Lengast Masai Village, although it has been helping the people, the system now isn’t producing enough water for the community. A combined task force was formed to address the problems, lead by Lt. Col James B Williams of the United States Air Force. Orphans Foundation Fund along with the members of the task force and community leaders went to the bore hole, water tanks, pipelines and distribution points in and around Lengast to see how the system may be improved to yield more water to sustain the village. The continued support of donors and development groups is much appreciated by Lengast Village.
