The National General Secretary of the Sierra Leone YMCA on today the 6th of March officially opens the 7-Up development water point. The 7 – UP Development water point is one of the many development spaces that the Sierra Leone YMCA is currently sponsoring.
The water point is located in Dwarzark community in Freetown, the capital city of Sierra Leone. The community has about 5,000 inhabitants, and all of them fetch water from that point. Before now the inhabitants were really struggling to get water, and thanks to the Sierra Leone YMCA and their National General Secretary for making this possible; a statement made by one of the community leaders.
The water point provides water for both drinking and domestic purposes, and it runs throughout the year with a constant high pressure. Before now, children used to go to school late, because they used to cover some considerable distance just to fetch water, but with this water point, that has been solved; a success story made by another community leader.
The National general secretary in his parting words commended the community people for supporting his work, though they were going to be the ones to benefit from it. He promised to support the anytime there is a felt need, and concluded that the Sierra Leone YMCA is always committed to supporting vulnerable people.
