Follow Up Rehabilitation

Due to the corona pandemic that started in 2020, we were unable to travel to Zimbabwe to visit and evaluate potential projects. To continue aiding people in Zimbabwe, Mpilo Foundation decided to employ local contacts to rehabilitate non- or poorly working boreholes. These boreholes have already proven their worth in the past, which made it possible to have the feasibility and costs of rehabilitation evaluated by one of our associates in Zimbabwe, allowing Mpilo Foundation to remotely provide clean water. The pilot project stemming from these plans was very succesful.

As a follow up to that project and funded by Impazz Maintain, Mpilo Foundations plans to rehabilitate five additional boreholes in the Matobo district, south of Bulawayo. The boreholes in question are located in Phakama Village, Mgadla Village, Manzana Village, Umthwentwe Village and Ekukhanyeni Clinic. Succesful rehabilitation of the clinic’s borehole is not certain, as it is a 72 meter deep hole. A hand pump (such as the Zimbabwe Bush Pump) is not workable at that depth. A submersible pump might provide a solution, but it would require electricity to operate.
