The following photographs were taken in December 2017 when a borehole was successfully drilled in the remote village of Lobok.  During this time the drilling rig and equipment was safely stored in Rick Strickland’s compound in Kanyao.  Prior to the drilling, surveys had been carried out by two of the Trustees, Les Saunders and John Harrison, plus the official water engineer/surveyor.


The Borehole at Waitaluk was drilled in 2017 and was funded by people in the north east of England. Fundraising was spearheaded by Roy Lemberger. In the Spring of 2018, Nehemiah Construction Ministries UK Trustee, John Harrison visited the site of the borehole to make checks. Everything was working and functioning  and the borehole producing a good yield.

Chwele West Special School

This special school takes in children who are disabled (both mentally and physically), disadvantaged or orphaned.  The workers do an immense job for the children in their care. The School has been waiting for a Borehole for seven years!  Through prayer and sacrificial giving enough money was raised to drill the borehole which proved easy to drill and is now providing an adequate clean water supply.
