It is a great pleasure for us all here to come at the end of this part of the project. We thank God for making this possible; and we’d like once again to thank you a million for your great help and support. We suffered from many years fetching water in buckets and cans from rivers, springs or streams, in a scholar complex of more than 800 pupils. I remember that last year we almost had a very big problem: very little kids from primary school went to the big Congo river without us knowing. While they were there, may be playing, one of them fell into the water. Fortunately, some fishermen were there in the shore; they rushed, caught the child and brought her back to the school…
This little story will let you know that you save many little souls by giving us water in school! Please pass our gratitude to all your benefactors, all those who contributed to make this possible. It is a big event at the school; children are very happy to see the water running as you’ll see on the photos, same for the sisters and teachers. One little girl, seeing water, spontaneously exclaimed in local language:” Nzambe merci!” This means:”Thank you Lord!”
