Emergency repairs for Chikandakubi

Mpilo Foundation has a project planned for 2022 to rehabilitate and install a number of boreholes in the areas around Chikandakubi and Jambezi, in the region of Victoria Falls. These boreholes have been mapped, inspected and assessed by Gift Sanyamahwe and Belinda Malandu. Their survey allowed us to determine whether boreholes were in need of rehabiltation or new installment, and how many people stood to benefit from this. Additionally, it has allowed us to predetermine the materials required for carrying out this project.

Results of the survey indicated that for many villages, rehabilitation or installment was an urgent matter. This urgency was demonstrated when Mpilo Foundation received a distress call from Chikandakubi Primary School. The school found itself without water unexpectedly, when suddenly both their borehole and their well became unusable. In reaction to this call for help, Mpilo Foundation organized an emergency repair for the school and, additionaly, for Batanani Village 2 and Batanani Village 4&5, two nearby villages .In total, three boreholes have been rehabilitated and are now fully functional.
