The green and stagnant water in the muddy pool that served this community ensured many families spent a considerable amount of time, and money they could ill afford, visiting the distant health centres.

The provision of two shallow wells is transforming lives in thirteen local villages. We are told the queue for water can continue until 2am!!!

Following the 2016 drought, when crops failed and funds were urgently needed to prevent starvation, it was decided to equip families with the means to carry and store water to provide for domestic needs and to water their crops.

These families are mainly elderly grandparents caring for their young grandchildren following the death of the parents. They are generally undernourished and frail and the ability to collect enough water to save some for the following day really can transform their lives.

Thanks to donations to our HEALTH FUND the first 20 famiilies have been provided with a water butt, watering can and two jerry cans, total cost...£30 . Your donation TODAY can help us provide for more families and bring the message of God's love alongside this vital practical aid.
