Clean water is what the villagers in the Oku area, in the NorthWest of Cameroon, desperately need as they still get seriously ill due to consumption of unclean water.
The large area, which includes 17 villages where more than 90000 people live, has an old water infrastructure that didn’t grow with the population needs. It also hasn’t had much-needed maintenance due to lack of local technical knowledge and to missing a sustainable income source to afford it.
EWB NL has partnered with a local NGO, Camaay – Cameroon Association of Active Youths, to help address the technical issues and to support the creation of a sustainable model that can keep the water infrastructure in the future.
Do you think everybody should have access to clean water? So do we!
We want to send two engineers to the field to assess the data we have so far gathered remotely and to provide technical training.
We have the time and the skills but we lack funds!
At the moment we’re looking to raise 2900 EUR to cover the logistics of a field visit!
YOUR help will allow us to go to the field thus giving us the possibility to create a much bigger impact!
