Pump repair in Lugudinga

On May 12, 2022, the association Service au Sahel received a visit from a delegation from the village of Lugudinga, situated 20km southeast of Moussoro.

The delegation explained that their hand pump wasn’t working any more. The village had been able to repair the pump several times, particularly closing the holes caused by rust in the pipes. They asked the association de help them repair the pump.

On May 17 the association, along with a team of repairmen based in Moussoro, were able to go visit the village. The removal of the pipes by the repair team showed clearly that all eight pipes were too rusted to be able to be used again. The association was able to offer eight new galvanized pipes.

Once the installation was done, the pump was quickly put into service by the children who live in the village. The residents of the village expressed their thanks for the repair.

The village has around 100 households according to its residents.

Conclusion

“There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens.” Ecclesiastes 3:1

2021 saw a new start for Markas al Nour in N’Djamena with the appointment of a new director in August. Classes and other activities were less in the Bahr el Gazel in 2021 compared to 2020. Water and community-led total sanitation continued in the Ouaddai with the same rhythm as before.

The transformation we would like to see in coming, but has not yet been achieved, so we will continue to work hard in the coming years. In the meantime, we hope that you appreciate reading the report about what we’ve accomplished in 2021.

2020 had plenty of success and challenges. The biggest challenge was the financial crisis which forced the closure of our Markas al Nour education center. Nonetheless, the center reopened its doors in order to keep offering high quality instruction.

We will continue working together on our common objectives in education and development in 2021.
