The Kenyan CEF missionary Eva R. asked us to visit various locations in Kenya and to see if we could make a project there to improve the situation of the people.
We visited the village Irigino near Nairobi, Mwea a village surrounded by rice fields, the village Waimash at the northern edge of Mount Kenya National Park and another village.
The village of Rukaramu (S 03° 18' 43'' E 029° 17' 27'') is located in sight of the international airport of Bujumbura in a lowland plain. It consists of 150 houses built by the government. In each of them lives a family with an average of six family members. Each house has a small piece of land that can be used as a garden. The families are returnees from Tanzania who fled there during the civil war in Burundi.
This afternoon we went to Mukike in the highlands, a good hour from Bujumbura. There we met Vital from anamed Burundi. The villagers were informed about our visit. There was a warm welcome with official speech of the representative of Mukike. We brought along about 20 Moringa stenopetala plants.
Today, after 3 days of construction, the project in Muhingo was successfully completed. A branch was added to the existing water pipe. At its end a second tapping point was built. This shortens the daily time to fetch water considerably.
