Rawbank in partnership with the National Episcopal Conference of Congo (CENCO), recently announced the successful inauguration of four new wells in central areas of the country as part of its ambitious initiative to improve access to clean water in the Democratic republic of Congo (DRC).

The new wells were carefully selected to meet the urgent need for clean water in the communities of Buta, Bondo, Gemena and Lukalaba. Through this project, Rawbank is demonstrating its commitment to the sustainable development and well-being of congolese communities by providing full funding for these vital initiatives.

In addition to providing access to clean water, these wells will have a significant impact on the daily lives of residents in the affected areas. These initiatives will contribute to improved health, education and economic development by reducing the distance and improving the quality of water.

The inauguration of these new wells underlines Rawbank’s continued commitment to being a leader in the social and economic transformation of the DRC. In partnership with key stakeholders such as CENCO and local entrepreneurs, Rawbank is strengthening its positive impact in the country. This demonstrates the power of collaboration in addressing the most pressing challenges facing the congolese people.

As Rawbank continues to expand its social footprint across the country, these new boreholes mark another step towards achieving its stated goal of drilling 100 wells by 2025, benefiting a quarter of a million Congolese households.
