The Living Water International Liberia (LWIL), with support from Chevron International Oil Company, has intensified its water and sanitation projects in District #4 in Montserrado County.
The launch of the projects was held April 2, in Paynesville.
The chairman of World Wide Community Block B on Duport Road, Henry Gbokpa, said he is overwhelmed with the level of work done by the LWIL in addressing the needs of the people, particularly water, sanitation and hygiene.
Mr. Gbokpa indicated that the LWIL has been highly supportive of the people of District # 4 by rehabilitating several wells, hand pumps and building of new latrines throughout the three communities in the district.
According to him, safe drinking water and sanitation have been serious challenges to the people in those communities, and as such, with the presence of the organization he strongly believes that the project will go a long way in helping the people.
Mr. Gbokpa said the project was timely in the district, especially after the Ebola outbreak in the country that claimed the lives of many Liberians.
He disclosed that the project would cover more than two communities in the area, including World Wide, Zayzay and Soul Clinic with each containing over 10,000 inhabitants.
Mr. Moses M. Karpu, who represented Rep. Henry Fahnbulleh, extended an invitation to all citizens of the district to work with the District Office in order to ensure that the projects are well secured and assured the community of Rep. Fahnbulleh’s commitment to work for their welfare.
Chevron International Oil Company recently embarked on the water and sanitation projects in the district.
