Leqceiba Well Completed

This well, near the small town of Leqceiba in southern Mauritania, was completed in October at a depth of 25 metres.  It will service a community of some few hundreds who often have to travel two kilometres to collect water from a fouled river source.  This is the third of our wells; the first, at Windy Jammy (45 metres deep) currently services a pastoral community who previously had to travel 5 kilmetres for water; the second, having hit solid rock at 29 metres, currently awaits permission for explosives to be used.
