The Village of Fabe in Cameroon

A well drilled by Herakles Farms in the village of Fabe. Herakles Farms started to drill this well way before they got any authorization to develop a palm oil farm. They always refer to this well as a proof of their commitments for the development of the local population. Unfortunately, to date, this well is still not delivering water properly. Most of the time, only mud comes out of it, and sometimes a very thin water flow. Besides, despite the fact that the people from Fabe made clear that they would prefer a water pipe taking water from the river to the village, Herakles Farms decided to drill a well in a place very close to the graveyards. Therefore, most of the people prefer to continue to get water from the ancient well at the entrance of the village than drinking the polluted water from this well.02/16/2012
