Lily of the Valley Water Need





History Logs

Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: South Africa

Location: Durban

Total Budget: $91,750

Area of Focus: Water and sanitation

Lily of the Valley is situated in Hammarsdale outside Durban. It consists of a number of homes, housing orphans and vulnerable children. Each home has a minder who feeds and cares for them. The children and staff total just on 150 persons. The problem they have is that the water supply in the area is extremely erratic and often goes off for days at a time which is adverse to the health of the children and also adds to the costs to purchase and source water at such times. This project will provide a consistent supply of water to the Village and includes provision for a borehole, as it will not be possible to only harvest rainwater due to the flat layout of the area. Rotarians from the RC Hillcrest will oversee and manage the project which should take between 4 and 6 moths to complete.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
