The Rotary Club of Lusaka Central has drilled and handed over Fifteen Boreholes to the community of Mbayamusuma area in Mazabuka District.
Rotary Club President Tristan Patel handed over the Fifteen Boreholes that have been dotted across Mbayamusuma ward located in the outskirts of Mazabuka District at a colorful ceremony held in the area yesterday.
Mr. Patel said the Fifteen boreholes were drilled at a total cost of Four Hundred Thousand Kwacha (k400,000) using financial support from Rotary Club Rotterdam of the Netherlands which channeled the finances through its sister club, the Rotary Club of Lusaka Central which supervised the project.
The Club President said it is the duty of the club to supplement and assist Government with the provision of clean and safe drinking water to its people especially those in rural areas.
Project Coordinator Gadiel Simpungwe said the boreholes will drastically reduce the water borne disease burden which the area was experiencing due to the intake of unsafe drinking water.
