The cesspit has erupted. Unfortunately, literally. Torrential rains and rushing streams instantly clogged the drains, washing all the objects, leaves and branches they encountered into them. Nature has placed a biological bomb right in the middle of the village, as if the bombs waiting in the barrels of the tanks a few hundred metres away were not enough.
“Over the weekend we fought a battle for water,” Sister Agnes writes from Congo. “We managed to vent some of the pipes and we reinforced the cistern and water systems to have water in all parts of the hospital.
However, this is still not enough. The problem of access to the source is now the most serious one.
Water reaches us from one source, from another only partially, and the third, located in the hills where the rebels are, is completely damaged. There are 15,000 families in the village. Each one needs water, and two incomplete sources simply do not provide enough. The amount of water is minimal. We are working with the International Red Cross to get to the nearest source located in the areas currently occupied by the rebellion, so that our team of plumbers can repair the damaged source.
Any success on the subject of water, we will, of course, immediately celebrate. It is with the same joy that we would like to inform our charges that the fundraiser to save the hospital has reached its goal. But in this we still need your support. Share, talk about us a lot and, if you can, share even a few zlotys with our patients and charges.
