Power restored in Zanzibar

Great news!  The power crisis seems to be over in Zanzibar and the electricity has been on, though somewhat erratically, since March 9th. The restoration of power after 3 months is wonderful news for the people of Jambiani who have suffered appalling privations due to lack of safe water for the past 3 months.  It is a great relief for ZAP, too, as we have now had to spent over $6000 on providing emergency water lorries to the beleaguered villagers, in addition to consignments of bottled water and extra funds for living expenses to the emergency clinic. Our thanks are due to many ZAP subscribers for their concern and support during the crisis, and Mr Pandu sent us a message to say that we are one of the very few organisations to give vital and practical help, which is deeply appreciated by his people
