# Borehole update - Lister Petter Generator back in action after refurbishment

Later in the week on Sat we travelled to Ndikir and installed the generator

Kindfund goats drink from water trough in Northern Kenya

Last week we collected the generator from the engineers in Meru. We paid Ksh 77,000 (£560) and ran into vehicle repairs of 25,000 carrying out our good deed.
Later in the week on Sat we travelled to Ndikir and installed the generator. We had a little difficulty getting it started as air had penetrated the fuel system but soon water was flowing. Now the village has a super abundance. God has blessed them with rain giving water in their catchment areas, the solar borehole pump has been replaced and the generator is back in action. However we have a job to do in training them to manage the generator.

It was good to join Raphael and the young congregation under the tree to celebrate Easter morning. We had come up in two vehicles so were able to bring some of our Ngaremara young people to share with our Rendille children.

Give thanks for the rains and the restoration of all water supplies

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 250 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.
