In 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.
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 their home village of the Zowerani area within Kilifi County where there is a desperate need of water and informed us that a total of nine thousand people will benefit from this borehole from the area surrounding the borehole site.
He further spoke about their agriculture projects and keeping of livestock which would all benefit from this water supply from the borehole 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 and Education and lack of reading materials in their school library.
If any would like to help and donate school books for the village school library please get in touch with our club education committee.
