Last week the final touches were put on the Musumba-Ruvumvu project. As of April 30th, 2012, more than 3,300 villagers have access to clean water for the rest of their life. Thank you for helping make this system possible!
The Gazelle Foundation is pleased to announce construction has started on the newest water system in the Bururi province of Burundi. With the completion of the most recent project – Musumba-Ruvumvu – more than 12,000 citizens to date have been provided access to clean water.
The Songa region in the Bururi province of Burundi has very limited clean water resources. Currently, the local inhabitants who have not benefited from a Gazelle Foundation project walk significant distances to obtain water from small springs and water pools that are far from potable. The Ruvumvu-Masonga project will span six (6) kilometers across the mountainous terrain, principally serving the following: Masonga primary school (315 students and teachers), the Masonga Pentecost church members (200 each weekend), and approximately 2000 people from the general population in the region between and Ruvumvu and Masonga.
