Ws Notes
David and Steven were in Bulinda village. And their intentions of going there was to carry out the borehole repair process . At the borehole promise they joined the 17 necessary rods with their rod guides to avoid the bad movements of the pipes later they fixed them back . However these were the new borehole parts which were replaced back into the borehole. The cylinder, 17 plastic pipes due to the nature formation of the borehole hole ,rod guides, rods, water tank ,bolts and the nipple adapter.When they finished the process of fixing and the replacement of the necessary borehole parts,the Kibo staff requested the community members to pump the borehole to check about its new working condition.Fortunately the borehole was working so well than before and even the flow of the amount of the water was too much . The committee members were so much impressed and praised the Kibo for the good Godly support. However because of time limitations,the Kibo staff were an-able to teach and remind the village about their borehole sustainability as usual after the repair process. Therefore the Kibo staff promised the borehole committee members that they will be planning on when they will be going back to the village to emphasize more about the full borehole ownership and the total responsibilities . In general according to the sanitation status of the entire village was good .Except for the fewer homes which were noted to have the need of improving on their hand washing stations.
