Handing Over Ninth Borehole

On Sunday 28th August 2016, Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari handed over their Second Centennial Year (2016/2017) borehole in Maweni Village, Kilifi County and this being our ninth borehole. This borehole was very generously donated by our very own immediate past president Lion Mayuri and family.

On arrival at the borehole, we were welcomed with traditional songs and dances by the village people.

After a short introduction we were entertained by the village children. Our President, Lion Linda Mariwa Shuma welcomed all the members for coming for the handing over ceremony. She also showed gratitude to the sponsor for their kind donation and told the village people to look after the borehole and allow anyone to use it for free. She said that they should not misuse it and not to waste the water. She also thanked Mr John Karuiki for identifying the village and sinking the borehole complete with the pump.

The village elders thanked the club, especially the donors for the borehole. They said that this borehole will benefit around 4500 people living in communities surrounding the village.

After the opening the borehole the club handed over packets of maize meal to the elders and juice/biscuits to the children.

If you have seen a great cause in this and wish to sponsor a borehole to change the lives of thousands of people, contact us to find out more!
