In an earlier post we mentioned that together with several other Rotary clubs in the Stockholm area and elsewhere we are participating in a Rotary International supported Global Grant Project in Sohag, Egypt. Here comes an update on the status of the project so far:-
The target village in the district of Sohag is El Saala.
Most of the over 6000 meters of pipeline has been laid and 50% of the target 182 houses in the village are now connected and have access to clean water.
The construction work is being carried out by the Water Authority of the Sohag District. They together with Unicef, Egypt are also taking care of the hygiene training of the villagers as well as the future maintenance of the installation.
The entire project is being supervised by Engineer Mr. Amin Sabri a member of The Rotary Club of Heliopolis Shorouk.
The project is receiving good press and social media coverage and is expected to be completed within the next few months.
