Dear Sir/Madame,

We the dwellers of Schiefflin Town - New Village Community, offer our thanks to Lifewater Liberia and the Last Well who have graciously given us a new handpump for all to freely access.

May God richly bless you all as well as the hygiene and evangelism team who spent such good times with us to teach us better health techniques and to bring us the good news of Jesus Christ.

We will remember your efforts in our prayers.

Signed: Nilliette Clarke

Project Summary

Shieffline Town is very large Town with many smaller districts.  The name is taken from the former camp Shieffline military Barracks that used to be located nearby. This section is located behind the Police Station in Schiefflin Town.

The people of this Community earn their living through petty trade and rock crushing enterprises.  It has a school, clinic and a market.

The people of New Village were very happy when they saw development moving into their newly established community. The Lifewater H&H Team was most highly welcome and they were able to acquire knowledge about how to sustain a healthy life by following and continuously keeping into practice the lessons taught them during the H&H Workshop.

They promised to also teach those who did not attend the Workshop and how keep their surrounding clean for good health.   


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!
