Flamingo Village located in Nakuru County, Kenya is an impoverished rural village where farming/subsistence farming is the primary occupation. Besides the inhabitants of Flamingo Village, the people of Miti Mingi, a neighboring community, will also benefit from the well.
Many people suffered from dehydration, typhoid, cholera, and diarrhea. In the last six months there were three deaths caused by amoebic dysentery. This project will result in a deep well providing clean, fresh water for the people!
This project is complete and successful! Yes, there was a delay. The well was drilled, all was well except the fluoride level was high. It took some months, while seeking a good contractor to provide a water treatment system to filter the water. The process was slow, but finally decided on a contractor in February 2020 to do the work, we just needed to raise some funds. But, in early March we had an amazing thing happen. The Kenya Water Resource Authority came for inspection of the well. They checked a sample of the water and said the water is fine and only a little high which should clear up in a few months of use!! So, they cleared the well for public use and the project was finished in April 2020, thankfully, without having to install a water purification system. There is now water for all in Flamingo Village!
