New Water Supply Project Begins in Xinli Village

Xinli VillageXinli Village is in the North of Hanyuan County, situated upon the sides and valley floor of a steep ravine at 1700m above sea level. DORS was first alerted to the severe drinking water shortage in three of the village hamlets in February 1998. Villagers were using small wells some distance from their homes, many of which were dry during six months of the year. The County Water Conservancy Bureau assisted in drawing up a plan using two spring sources that flow throughout the year, as suggested by the villagers. With funding provided by Misereor, construction of the water tanks and purchase of piping and other materials began this month. At project completion it is expected that all 325 people will have water for household and animal needs.

Another DORS Drinking Water Project Completed in Chenhe Village

After the successful completion of the Drinking and Irrigation Water Supply Project in hamlet 3 last year, DORS was asked to consider a similar project in hamlet 6. The project began in December 1998 managed by village cadre, Chen Dong Xiang. Total funding provided was 13,000RMB (GBP1000) for supplying 116 people with fresh water piped into their homes from a mountain stream. DORS visited the completed project in March and spoke with many of the residents who were clearly delighted with the new supply.

Funding News

DORS were the grateful recipients of two generous donations this month:
Methodist Relief and Development Fund, previous donors for Zhushan Village water supply and Juetuo Village irrigation water supply projects, contributed a further GBP10,000 towards DORS projects.


Misereor of Germany, who supported five DORS projects in 1997, provided a total of DEM50,000 towards a water supply project, an afforestation project and women's rural credit scheme.
