Water Supply Hospital St. John of God Lunsar




The Hospital of Lunsar is in dare need of additional water supply. They made an appeal to Für Sierra Leone e.V. to support the construction of a water bore hole (65 meters deep) for a long lasting well with additional two overhead water tanks of 10,000lts each. The drilling has already been successfully implemented (Photo). In the first weeks in May, the water pump will be installed, to provide the hospital with 400 liters of fresh water per hour. Later, a water storage system will be implemented. Also the taps of the pumps within the hospital needed to be replaced, so new water-saving taps had been installed, that work with pushbuttons: The water consumption will be reduced by 5 %. The Hospital will have a 10% „own share“ in this project, covering service and maintenance cost for the first 24 month.
