I am a poor lady with 5children and 3orphans that I care fore making them 8 my husband does not work and so do i, I have an old aunt I have to take care of because my brothers and sisters rejected her yet she also did not bear any child. In our community we have a problem of scarcity of water because the well is down the hill and it takes 3 hours to get a jerrycan from there. Today I am so glad that,that is no longer a bother to me because CHEDRA has constructed a 1000 litre rain water harvesting tank. Thank YOU CHEDRA.
