A spot visit by the trustees witnessed more than 50 villagers queuing for water. The villagers were mainly women and children spread over 4 nearby villages. The Borehole is benefiting approximately 1000 beneficiaries. Though the water in the borehole is abundant, the demand for water is still very high. Boreholes cost approximately £3,000. The locations are selected to prioritise areas with the greatest need.
