Africa Drilling Exploration operations manager Satish Reddy said the company donated three boreholes to be sunk in the same communities that had been identified by Jubilee Centre.

Jubilee Centre executive director pastor Lawrence Temfwe said the money for drilling the boreholes was donated by Willow Creek Church of the United States of America.

Pastor Temfwe praised US-based because the boreholes would service 80 000 people in the communities involved.

He called on the Church to respond to the social problems affecting the people in various communities.

Some of the communities that would benefit from the boreholes are Chibuluma in Kalulushi, Chifubu and Kaloko in Ndola, Fisenge in Lyanshya, and George Township in Lusaka.
