A new water supply for a primary school

Ecole Publique Kodek is situated in a village about 7 Kms from Maroua, the capital of the Far North Region of Cameroon.  The school currently has 800 pupils enrolled but it has not had a supply of clean drinking water – until now!  This small project, costing just £8,860, will significantly improve the lives of all the children and teachers at the school, pupil absences will decline and it is anticipated that the children’s academic performance will improve as a consequence.  This part of the country lies in the Sahel: it is dry and dusty and communities are very poor.  Cholera, typhoid and dysentery are common and, when children cannot get access to clean drinking water they are particularly vulnerable to these diseases.  We are very grateful to Gompels Healthcare for providing the funds for this project and many others in Cameroon.
