Project Summary

The Water and Sewer Community (Quarter#4) is located near the Monrovia Junction. This large community of mostly women and children received its name from the Water and Sanitation Annex/Station owned by the Liberian Government. This was before the Liberian civil conflict 21 years ago, that displaced thousands of people.

The lack of safe drinking water has been a serious problem for this community because the only sources of water they had were from creeks and open hand dug wells, which has caused serious outbreaks of water borne diseases.

This new well will provide Health & Hope to the people providing them with safe drinking water for many years to come.

The Lifewater Health and Hygiene Team conducted a workshop on August 22, 2018 with 26 participants. This workshop taught the community the importance of good hygiene, and how to purify water before consumption, if needed. This has brought tremendous relief to the community, especially to the children.

 

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!
