|2009 Well Project at Shungu|
United Methodist Shungu Center Well Project supported by Union UMC completed in April 2009
Shungu Health Center, serving multiple communities within a 70 km was in dire need for water and sanitary latrines. The health center, until the provision of funding from Union UMC, has been without water and a sanitary latrine. As such, patients and surrounding communities had very little access to water and patients at Shungu had to go to the bush to defecate. Now, with the provision of water, patients and surrounding communities have access to clean potable water. As well, the provision of latrine at the health center will provide a sanitary and hygienic means for patients and the health center. Now, with the provision of water at Shungu, surrounding communities have two reasons to go to Shungu, medical care and water.
