The Church of the Province of Central Africa
Water and food security
We drilled a borehole and established a market garden.
Organised the community and drilled borehole.
After the borehole was drilled people asked for a church to be built.
About 1,000 families live in the community – all of them get water from the borehole free of charge. This has also cut down on the time the women spent getting water.
It also waters the garden which grows vegetables on a two acre garden, grow cabbages, onions tomatoes which are sold to local community – grown by community organisation with the church.
Also provides water for the livestock – about four animals per family, combination of cattle and donkey. Cattle used for milk and meat. Cattle and donkeys used for draught power.
