This area is a difficult place to get to; even an experienced driver can get lost on the way. The road is more like dirt path and it is challenging for a four-wheel drive Land Cruiser to navigate.  

There is an abandoned borehole on the property which has been dry for several years. It was drilled to 200 feet and a hydrologist has indicated that the reliable water is much further down. We will have to drill outside of the clinic property which will add to the difficulty, requiring a larger pump, a greater number of solar panels and security measures to protect the system.

The drilling operation is on hold at the moment as the whole country is under a travel ban. When that is lifted, the work will start. It is frustrating as the community needs the clean water now.
