Waiting on the ferry to cross the Laboye River a few kids from nearby neighborhood came down to the water. They only speak Sango so we had about 3 words in common, but it didn't matter. It's always easy to have fun with kids.
Spent the day traveling to a rainforest Pygmy community with a Water for Good team to do a rare emergency fix on a water pump at the school. So how was your Wednesday? 😁
So, so much more to tell about this trip, there will be plenty more pics to come #africa#rca#centralafrica#CARcrisis#water#rainforest
Boali Falls used to be a popular tourist & resort area and it's easy to see why...then Seleka rebels came through and destroyed the hotel & damaged a lot of the resort. Now the town is left picking up the remnants of their economy with this absolutely incredible part of nature that few people see any more
The beauty that is just everywhere in this country is mind blowing. Boali Falls is one of the most incredible places I've seen...and the town knows they have something really special. It used to have a resort just feet from the falls but then Seleka rebels came through & destroyed it during the civil war. I can't even imagine how amazing it would've been to spend a weekend there #africa#rca#centralafrica#boali#waterfall#travel#adventure#explore
So this is the important part of the reason we were even in Bouar. Literally just a week before we stopped by a village just outside the city this was their water source. For everything. Bathing, cooking, drinking. I can't. I couldn't.
But working with World Vision, Water For Good had been able to drill a well & install a water pump a short walk away inside the actual village. So after checking on that & answering questions, they took us on the walk they take to their old water supplies (this is only in rainy season, year round one is 1km away)
Just stunning. I thought I knew, but I had zero idea.
