Project Summary

Prayer Town is located along the Liberia Agriculture Company Highway, about an 8 minute drive from the Buchanan/Monrovia junction. This town was established by a Christian family called Ben Joe's Family, people would gather here regularly to have prayer meetings. The town was previously called B.Joe Town,  but later changed to Prayer Town. This swampy area has been a very challenging place to live, because of the lack of safe drinking water.  The hand dug wells that the people would use, are contaminated from the flood waters during the rainy season. This new well will provide safe water for this community for many years to come.

The Lifewater Health & Hygiene Team held a workshop on June 4,2018 for this community having 27 participants.

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!
