Running water at last (well nearly!)

Posted on 28th May 2016 by Chris Jones

Over the last few months we've been hard at work on a project in Chin State to bring hydro-electricity and a clean water supply to our Community Health Worker (CHW) training centre and Clinic.

This has taken multiple explorations into the jungle, assessments of five rivers, the hard work of the whole community and the laying down of over 3 miles of pipework and cabling.

We are delighted to report that water has now started to defy gravity and is flowing up and not down the Chin Hills!

The hydro-electric generator alone took 5 days to dismantle, 3 days to transport and 5 days to reassemble once in-situ. We've also had to cut down enough trees to make 200 pylons to carry the electricity cable.

The project is about 75% complete and we're still looking for ongoing support. If you would like to help us complete this project, do get in touch with our team on or donate to this project here.
