10 February 2011
In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the national director of the National rural water service (SNHR), Georges Koshi, last week presented his action program for 2011.
He announced the creation of a hundred water wells at Bumba, in the Equator Province, with financing from the UN agency FIDA, reports the newspaper Le Potentiel.
A hundred wells will be renovated in the territory of Luozi in the Lower-Congo Province, with the aid of a collaboration with the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef). The wells will be fitted with Vergnet pumps.
The rural communities surrounding the city of Kinshasa will also benefit from the construction of a hundred water wells.
Elsewhere, the African Development Bank (ADB) this week announced its intention to grant 15 million dollars to finance a project bringing access to drinking water and sanitation in Mozambique in the provinces of Nampula and Zambezia, reports the Macauhub news website.
