Only 30% of the neighbourhood has access to safe drinking water. The majority of the neighbourhood is depending on water from the rivers that run through the neighborhood or rainwater collected from rooftops. Many people go fetch drinking water from other parts of the city.
Together with partners in Belgium and Kinshasa we are working on a project to improve access to drinking water in the district. This will include the drilling of a borehole and the construction of water reservoirs and public fountains.
The technical and financial feasibility of the project is currently under investigation.
