Project Summary

The Dark Forest Community Quarter #9 is located along the Monrovia-Buchanan Highway in Buchanan City directly behind the City's Sub-Police Station. It is known as a business center where there are lots of social activities with no access to safe drinking water/safe water.

The population of this Community is 2170 inhabitants with 60% women and children. Their main source for water are hand dug wells. These wells, during the dry season are less than four buckets full.

The Health and Hygiene Team Lifewater Liberia mobilized and conducted a workshop on May 10, 2018 that brought in a lot people who decided to learn about Hygiene and what it is all about. The H&H Team taught and demonstrated on how water should be purified by chlorination, washing hands with safe water, washing hands after using the toilet, washing hands before eating always, and after working in the field.

After the workshop, joy was the expression of thanks and appreciation to the Lifewater H&H Team for the new thing they learned about, how safe water saves life.


This well was drilled as part of a cooperative NGO initiative to provide safe drinking water to all Liberian's. Thanks to ''The Last Well Inc.'' for their coordination and support!
