Rotary Helps with Clean Water

Back in 2009, Jim Culberson, a North Rotarian in WV, and Kim Zook, a Bremerton Rotarian in WA, partnered with the Rotary Club in Bo, Sierra Leone to establish a water project that would bring clean and accessible water to the residents of Bumpe. Together the partners secured a $50,000 grant from the Rotary Foundation to fund the construction of new water wells. Today, the project has completed 8 wells in various communities including:
·       Bumpe
·       Mongayba
·       Mojibba
·       Gibbu
·       Solima
·       Bo

Thanks to the generosity and partnership of the Rotarians, the residents of Sierra Leone can be confident that they are receiving safe water within their own community. Parents can live without the worry of water borne diseases killing their children and children can enjoy their health and childhood. The Kposowa Foundation would like to extend a special thank you to all that were involved in this project!
