Notes
Alex first marked the two boreholes in Bupaluka, the one that was drilled by kibo and the other that was repaired recently by Kibo. He and the water committee moved home to home checking on the sanitation facilities in the homes. He was able to move in about 10 homes before it started raining. However in the homes seen, many of the facilities were still meeting the standards. He reminded them of the importance of keeping their homes very clean and maintain a clean and safe water chain. Let the clean water that is got in from the borehole end up in a clean home always. This will ensure that they will have a clean and healthy community. The borehole that was recently repaired by Kibo still has an issue of the reduction in the water flow. He continued to encourage the community to take good care of their boreholes and their homes.
