We had to spend more money than we estimated because,
• We did estimate on end of the year 2018 for the project and we could not finished the project within the deadline due to Easter attack in year 2019, and landslides due to the heavy rain in middle of the year 2019 and also the COVID 19 pandemic. And by the year 2020/2022 the prices of every material increased more than 75%.
• Because of the COVID 19 pandemic we had to restart the project several time.
• Construct extra 4 low concrete water stands and supply new 2.000L and 5.000L water tank.
• Construct extra 3 hand washing units and 5 tap posts.
• Construct a stone wall for protection of the well.
