This video and photo are of the Kavataria water pump maintained by the Mr Koega, the plumber.

Although CFK managed to get this pump working recently, we then found it needed more extensive maintenance as the existing pipes had rusted, making the water undrinkable. This water pump was broken down and the people from the biggest village on the Island, Kavataria, were not able to fetch clean drinking water. CFK bought the necessary parts and Koega repaired the pump and it is now working perfectly and people are able to fetch water for drinking, cooking, washing and etc. Yay!!!!
