Floods in Extreme North hamper progress

by | Sep 21, 2016 | BSFA News

The construction of our school projects in the Extreme North region can be slow-going at times!!  There is currently terrible flooding of the all the roads leading to our project at CES Dama in the Mayo Danay Division, so SHUMAS staff who were monitoring the building work had to put their bikes onto canoes in order to travel along the roads!  They then had to wade through floodwater for 5 Kms … but they made it, and found that the school is already finished up to the level of the roof.  Once the rains finish, work will really speed up and it is hoped that this, and the primary school at Mayel-Ibbe will be opened in November 2016.
