Corporate Social Responsibility: Boissons du Cameroun Donates Borehole to Bamendakwe

Mezam SDO cuts ribbon as he officially inaugurates the Bamendakwe Borehole

Cameroon's leading Brewery company, Boissons du Cameroun has donated a state-of-the-art borehole to the people of Bamendakwe.

Situated at the Atugolah Quarter which plays host to the Women empowerment centre and a proximity stadium, the project has been described as timely by His Majesty, Fon Forchesirri III of Bamendakwe.

The community hosting a good number of Internally Displaced Persons from other parts of the region, has had difficulties in getting clean, portable water and availability in the heart of the dry season is a call for concern.

The borehole according to the representative of the General Manager of Boison du Cameroun, Fobiteh Divine, is 75M deep with a flow rate of six metres cube per hour and has a storage capacity of 5000 litres.

The borehole has two supply points with 5 taps to facilitate the supply of water to the population.

This is the third borehole that Boison du Cameroun is constructing in the North West Region and the 16th in the National territory.

Simon Emile Mooh, SDO of Mezam

According to the SDO of Mezam, Simon Emile Mooh, the first was constructed at Ntarikon in Bamenda II subdivision, Nkwen Fon's palace in Bamenda III and now in Atugolah in Bamenda I subdivision. The SDO championed those who wrote the appeal letters to this company and got positive feedback.

While appreciating the company for delivering this borehole, he called on them not to relent their efforts in providing more boreholes and developing water catchment areas in the Mezam division.

Speaking on behalf of the population, the Mayor of Bamenda I subdivision, Mbigha Felix saluted the quality of the borehole that produces fresh drinking and portable water.

With the recent urbanisation of Bamenda, he requested more boreholes to be constructed around areas that have an acute water shortage.

The SDO of Mezam recommended that a management committee be set up to ensure the maintenance of the water and the replacement of broken taps.

Traditional dances came to grace the event 

The borehole in Bamendakwe has taken more time to be constructed than any other borehole done by Boissons du Cameroun. The company explains that after the digging, the water was tested and it was discovered that it had a lot of iron content. Recommendations were made to reduce the iron content and make the water portable.

All the necessary recommendations were done and water is safe for drinking.

Boissons du Cameroun is currently undertaking studies in other areas of Mezam to harness their water potential.
