Water is flowing at our newly-drilled water well in Tajamar, Bolivia! More than 400 families (about 2,400 people) will benefit. With the well drilled and water flowing, we next installed a pump to extract the water. The well is 200 feet deep and is currently providing 5/6 liters of water per second. Our staff say that the water flow will increase as the well is cleansed.
Earlier this month, our well-drilling operators from our counterpart organization Mano a Mano Nuevo Mundo traveled to the community of Tajamar/Laguna Sulti in the Municipality of Punata to set up and drill one of the four wells Mano a Mano will be building in the area over the next few months. Like all Mano a Mano projects, these wells are a partnership, with participation and support from Harbortown Rotary Club, the municipality, the communities of Laguna Sulti and Chirusi, and Mano a Mano.
