In the East province of Cameroon there is a village of approximately 800 people, and two surrounding villages made up of 200 people each. There is only one source of water in these villages: the Kadey River. There are no wells and no water pumps for miles, and the community is obliged to get all their water, including drinking water, from the river.
The Kadey River is used for many things: bathing, washing clothes, defecating, urinating, and as a watering hole for animals. This water source should definitely not be used for drinking water for the community, but during the dry season the villagers don’t have a choice.
Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to install a water pump in the village so that the community no longer suffers from preventable diseases like diarrhea and intestinal worms due to a lack of potable water.
