About

Project Description:

The project is designed to provide an immediate improvement to the living conditions of RSLAF personnel, and their families, within the three most densely populated barracks in Freetown (Wilberforce, Murray Town and Goderich). It will complement existing infrastructure improvement initiatives, which are providing enhancements to living conditions outside the Peninsula.  The first output will be an adequate, reliable and safe supply of drinking water.  This will be delivered through the installation of new pipes, a proper connection with Freetown’s main water network, provision of stand-by power supply to pumping stations, provision of secondary water treatment capacity in accordance with World Health Organisation standards, the installation of large water reserve tanks, and the purchase of water bowsers to fill up the reserve tanks during periods of drought and failures in the mains supply. The second output is the provision of adequate sanitary facilities. A third output will focus on the medical and health facilities within the barracks by reinstating the structural integrity of the Community Health centres/Medical Inspection rooms, and the provision of basic equipment and hygiene facilities.
