Kenya: 133 million Dollars to upgrade water infrastructures
6 November 2009
A vast project for upgrading the water supply and drainage networks in Kenya, in the region of Yatta, was provided with 123 million Dollars this week by the African Development Bank.
This involves establishing, training, and providing financial support for water service providers, upgrading the networks for drinking water and waste water, and constructing a dam.
The project should result in cutting the number of people suffering from illnesses caused by water and improving water supply and drainage.
As well as this, food safety will be enhanced thanks to the strengthening of water storage infrastructures.
This week the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation also announced that the European Union has just agreed to provide an aid package of 134 million Dollars to the country, a part of which will be used to upgrade the water distribution network in the district of Ganze.<br/>
