The water pump has just been installed and is now operating in the Zaire ward water and sanitation project thanks to IDRF. Orphans Foundation Fund has worked during these past weeks with the engineers from Water Solutions. We are waiting for the water report to know the exact composition and quantity of the water, but the community wasted no time in partaking of the sweet fresh water from the well. This is a well that will give new life, health, and happiness to the people here in Mererani Tanzania.
The new Zaire ward water and sanitation project, run by Orphans Foundation Fund and funded by the International Development and Relief Foundation (IDRF), is moving ahead with great success! The team from Water Solutions has successfully drilled a bore hole and have found plenty of fresh water. The community is thrilled with this generous gift from IDRF and send many heartfelt thanks to the donors.
The Orphans Foundation Fund staff met on Friday with leaders of the Muslim community in Mererani Tanzania to discuss plans and organize for the Zaire ward water and sanitation project and funded by the International Development and Relief Foundation (IDRF). We talked about forming a balanced committee of both Christians and Muslims and Men and Women to oversea the water distribution. After talking in depth concerning possible conflicts, we were glad to find that the relationship between faiths in the Zaire ward are strong and healthy. Good beginnings to great efforts should lead to excellent results for advancing this community here in Tanzania.
Doctor James Lace and his colleagues from Childhood Health with Orphans Foundation Fund continue their ongoing support of Mt. Meru Hospital and their dedicated staff. With the donation of a refrigerator and a large supply of PPD, which is used to test for Tuberculosis, brought to Tanzania by Adam and Tatiana will help to save many lives. It is through partnerships spurred by compassion, and responibility to help the community, that keeps our projects and societal good growing.
