Kivilini, the village where the hospital is located, has particular topographic conditions and it is difficult to dig a well. In this village with cultivated land of nearly 200 mu (1 mu is equal to 0.0667 hectare) and about 300 families, there are only 3 wells, hardly to meet the needs of villagers in drinking, domestic water and irrigation. Those Chinese employees offered to donate money and helped them dig 2 wells.
Friends from the Chinese project have helped us dig wells, and we have never had to worry about drinking water anymore. Besides, several families in our village lived a hard life because of physical disability, and the wives and children had to do some part-time jobs. After knowing that, our Chinese friends have tried to hire those disabled people in the project as long as they are eligible. They have bought insurance for us and helped us out of the difficulties in life. We really appreciate these Chinese friends.
In return, villagers often send fruits and vegetables they grow by themselves to the project department for the Chinese young men to taste.
