Thirteen Rotary clubs in Northern California joined together to fund clean water for 7,500 people.
Water for Mefou
Healthier families put less pressure on the forest and on the animals who live there, and ... they are healthier! Which leads to many good things.
Unfortunately the abundant surface water isn't safe, and Mefou is too remote for any municipal supplies of clean water. Yet underground, the water is beautifully clean and safe.
Through our Rotary in the Rainforest initiative in partnership with Ape Action Africa, Act for Great Apes has secured funding to bring clean water to the Mefou communities through community wells and wise water education. Ape Action Africa has already begun installation and set up community water committees.
If your are a Rotarian and wish to become involved, please email Susan. We'd love to have you!
