In 2010 4SmilingFaces constructed a groundwater well and pump in the DRC so costly and irregularly supplied drinking water is used only for food and drink. Ever since then things like taking a shower, doing washing, flushing the toilets, and so on are done with groundwater coming from the mountains.
Up to now, we used an in-water pump at the bottom of the deep well, but that is irreparably damaged by the earthquakes and hundreds of aftershocks and must be replaced. 4SmilingFaces will supply a new pump which will be housed next to the well. This pump is of better quality, easier, and safer to maintain and repair. This job will be done at the start of the dry season at the beginning of October.
