Development Cooperation collaborates with the supply of drinking water to the Ivorian town of Roc (12/01/2018)

The City of Murcia, within its firm commitment to development cooperation through the council that directs Rebeca Perez, collaborates with the NGO Maestros Mundo in a project for the supply of drinking water for the development of rural areas of southwestern Costa of Ivory.

The access of the 1,500 inhabitants of Roc to drinking water is very complicated, since they have a single functional well, 15 meters deep, old (wide diameter), which has no pump to extract the water and therefore the Extraction requires a lot of work and long waits and is done using ropes and cubes.

As well as the well is shallow, it runs out quickly and as a result, only 400 people a day out of a total of 1,500 are supplied with water thanks to it.

The situation causes social unrest and huge losses of time and energy in the search for water.

The rest of the people (73% of the population) are supplied in artisanal wells and marshes where the water is not suitable for consumption and source of diseases.

That is why the objective of the project is to provide Roc with a system that helps the inhabitants (especially women, since it is a 100% female task) to obtain abundant drinking water for the entire population.

The system will be possible thanks to solar energy (in Roc there is no electricity).

The aim is to prepare a 60 meter deep modern well (narrow diameter), install a submerged solar pump in this modern well, install the solar panels needed to operate the pump, a 20 m3 water tank of polyester with feet galvanized metal, in addition to the pipes and taps needed to supply the entire population of Roc.
