MCC CEO Dana J. Hyde Visits Guma Valley Dam in Sierra Leone
On the second stop of the MCC Powering Africa trip, MCC CEO Dana J. Hyde toured the Guma Valley Dam and water treatment facility and met with staff in Freetown, Sierra Leone. The facility provides water to the people of Freetown. Her visit also included a stop at a water kiosk at Kissy Dockyards and community-operated water standpipes in Mamba Ridge to better understand how Freetown residents access water.
MCC’s Sierra Leone Threshold Program supports reforms by the Government of Sierra Leone that will lead to more effective delivery of water and electricity services and limit opportunities for corruption as the country works to recover from the Ebola epidemic.
