On Sunday 28th February 2016, Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari opened their SIXTH borehole in the Kilifi County area which was fully sponsored by Haider Abdulla & friends from Canada. Members met at Tusky's Kilifi at 10.00 am and then proceeded to the borehole site.

We were welcomed by the Village children with songs and dance and addressed by the Community Chairman who thanked us for our kind gesture of building this borehole in the Zowerani area within Kilifi County where there is a desperate need of water and informed us that a total of 9000 PEOPLE would benefit from this borehole.

He further spoke about their agriculture projects and keeping of livestock which would all benefit from this water supply and make their Community more self sustainable.

Some of the hardships they face were also mentioned such as jiggers and bed bugs which are keeping children away from School / Education and lack of reading materials in their school library.

Our Club President Lion Mayuri Patel thanked all the Community elders and children for their warm welcome and also mentioned that the Club will look into helping them face their other hardships. Lion President further thanked Mr. Kariuki (contractor) who has helped us locate such sites which are in desperate need of water and Lion Zainul Dar (Club Projects Convener) for organizing these events.

The activity was concluded by presenting the village elders with packets of maize meal and the children were given packets of biscuits and juice.
