Using their bare hands and raw improvised methods, the Catholic Mission led a group of youth to bring down the wind pump by the end of January. Later, this month, another group has been mobilized to create a new foundation, while community members have raised over $600 to allow them to build an additional tank for water storage. If not for transport limitations, the repairs would have already been underway by now.
