Water Shortage Hits Voinjama Central Market Community

By Korboi Gbelewala, Lofa County Correspondent

MONROVIA, Jan 26 (LINA) -The lack of adequate water supply to meet the needs of more than 3,000 residents of the central Voinjama market community has reached an alarming proportion.

The residents complained to the Liberia News Agency Sunday that the only available hand-pump built in 2003 by the International Rescue Committee (IRC) can no longer cater to the growing number of residents in the area.

A resident of the area, Madam Kormassa Ballah, explained that as a result, residents have to wake up as early as 3:00 a.m. to travel long distances in search of safe-drinking water.

She said the situation requires urgent solution, and appealed to philanthropic organizations and the government to come to the rescue of the residents.

Madam Ballah said that through self-help efforts, residents were drilling wells in the nearby valleys to fetch water.
