The Rotary Club of Brusubi has inaugurated a new water supply facility for the Kabafita Lower Basic School in Brikama.

According to officials, this is meant to enhance access to clean water for students and promote their health.

The event which was held on Saturday June 20th 2020 at the Kabafita Lower Basic School in Brikama, aims to provide 3,500 students with better water facilities with the establishment of a borehole, a water reservoir, and the provision of water access points at a cost of GMD 400,000.

The project which started in October 2019 was completed in February this year. However, the handing over ceremony was delayed due to the current state of public emergency, officials disclosed.
