Takaungu Village Borehole


On Sunday 20th November 2016, Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari handed over their Third Centennial Year (2016/2017) borehole in Takaungu Village and this being our Tenth borehole. These two boreholes were very generously donated by a Well Wisher, which was done in Takaungu. Just for clarification, the date on both the nameplates read 13th November 2016 as that was the actual handing over date but due to some unforeseen circumstances we could not do it on that day.

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

After a short introduction we were entertained by the village children and traditional dances by the elders. After a short address by the representatives of the two villages 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 donations and told the village people to look after the boreholes and allow anyone to use it for free. She said that they should not misuse it and not to waste the water.

The village elders thanked the club, especially the donors for the boreholes. They said that this borehole will benefit around 3000 to 4500 people living in communities surrounding the villages.
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!
