Description

Projekt zabezpečil výstavbu troch studní s pitnou vodou, systém potrubí s celkovou dĺžkou 3 300m na rozvod vody zo studní, ktoré zabezpečia dostatok pitnej vody pre obce. Každá studňa má vlastný naftový generátor na elektrickú energiu pre ponorné čerpadlo a celá studňa je chránená murovaným prístreškom, ktorý zabráni jej poškodeniu alebo odcudzeniu. Vybudovaním ďalších studní sa zlepšil prístup k pitnej vode 30 000 obyvateľom, vďaka čomu mohli zároveň obnoviť pestovateľské aktivity – pestovanie olív, ktorým sa venovali pred vypuknutím nepokojov.
