The 3 large black water storage tanks are installed and looking good!  Duncan managed to get photos sent to us from a cybercafe in Nairobi (after his computer equipment was stolen when his house was broken into).  The photos below show the tanks arriving and being installed on their foundations in Ndandini, being connected to the kiosk by the piping, and the taps of the kiosk just waiting to deliver water to the villagers!

Meanwhile the ladies of the village continue to get their water by digging in the river bed - hopefully there will soon be plentiful potable water in these tanks that they will have access to after the well is drilled, and the pump and generator have been installed.

In case any of you have been wondering about where Duncan sleeps while out working at the village, here is a photo of his accommodation - 4 plastered walls with a an old foam pad on the floor.  And he gets to keep the building materials in his room too.

In Sechelt B.C. Canada our bags are packed with our old camping gear and tomorrow we will fly to London on our way to Nairobi.  One of the bags is packed with a collection of beautiful new Teddy Bears which we have been collecting and will be donated to an orphanage in Nairobi.  Our Project Manager Duncan and his wife Catherine donate their time one Sunday each month to feeding these orphans.

We'll also be taking along a new banner to mount at the well site with the names of all our partnering Rotary clubs and other major donors.
