# Work Completed / Work Commenced: Ndikir

Back to Ndikir to finish some unfinished business – then planning the next phase

Returning to Ndikir in our last full week, we serviced the Lister engine and made a permanent repair of the damaged wires from the generator. Bleeding out the air from the fuel caused us a little heartache, but eventually we had it running sweetly!

Next, we loaded the 1000 litre tank into the pickup and, fixing a hose from it to the pipe at the borehole, we had it filled in 10 minutes. A five km drive to our new classroom…and the water was transferred to the 10,000L on-site tank.

Repeating the journey a couple more times gave enough water to allow us to complete construction of the double latrine, a job that had been stalled two months earlier as we were unable to make concrete due to the shortage of water.

Five days later we returned on a short day visit with Pamela for her to see the children – especially two young girls Ntodia and Linah who have been with us for four years. Pamela was surprised to see how much has changed already at the new site, where a pitch has been cleared for the children to enjoy playing football.

Meanwhile, Raphael has marked out a 10 acre site which we plan to fence with local hedging in preparation for the start of building next year.

Kindfund was established as a charity in 2004 to further the gospel of Jesus Christ and to help relieve poverty amongst some of the poorest tribes in northern Kenya, working with the pastoralist Turkana, Samburu and Rendille.

We currently use 5 tonnes of food and supplies per month, providing for 125 children in 4 homes and 400 children in nursery and primary education.

We have dug 7 wells and fitted 7 handpumps, bringing safe water to remote villages.

100% of gifts go to Kenya.
