Rafin Zurfi I, Nigeria
Replacement of worn-out pump and repairing of well.
Completed: March 5th, 2021
Rafin Zurfi is a community familiar with frequent pump repairs especially with the Indian Mark. In fact, Mr. Isaiah, a member of the community has been gained considerable experience with pump repairs. He was very instrumental in fishing out one lost sucker rod, rising main and pump.
We shared with the community our belief that the Afridev pump will work better and they reluctantly agreed. On the first day of work, we informed the chief that we had finished and that they should not expect frequent pump failures anymore. He skeptically said, “let’s give it some days.” We are glad that days after, as we drive past Rafin Zurfi Village to Ibwa, the crowd continue to gather around the wells and they are all functional.
