Water for Life
The Trevi Group has donated a full plant for drilling and water well exploitation in Sudan and Uganda
The Trevi Group has donated a complete system for groundwater exploration and exploitation to two humanitarian associations working in Central Africa to fight against drought. The said associations are AVSI from Cesena, which operates in South Sudan and “Africa Mission - Cooperazione e Sviluppo” from Piacenza that has an operating base in Uganda.
The African regions of Sudan and Uganda are indeed affected by the serious problem of the lack of water, which has dramatic consequences also on the health of the population. Committed in a number of international solidarity projects, the Trevi Group has donated a plant for water exploration and exploitation in favour of the project “Water for life”. The plant can reach a depth of 150 m and includes a number of technical support equipment, two compressors, drilling accessories and five 4-wheel drive trucks (2 trucks equipped with a tank for water collection and transport, 2 fully equipped trucks for the provision of various services and 1 fitted with a hydraulic crane).
In addition to the donation of the equipment, skilled workers of the Trevi Group will train the staff onsite on how to use and service the whole system. It is a significant aid to the initiative carried out by the two humanitarian associations committed to the social, health and economic development of extremely poor areas of the world.
The first drinking water well has been drilled at the “Bakita Centre” in Yambio, to serve the village of Yabongo and a community of more than 500 inhabitants who so far have been collected water from a seasonal stream a few kilometres away.
