A message from the community

Dear Sponsor In this community of 2000 people,it is very difficult when the pump is not working and we have to try and get water from the next nearest pump which already serves a lot of people. We are thankful that we can call Lifewater to come and repair it. All I can Say thank you Lifewater for fixing our well and giving us a new pump. We had problem to find good water and now that is all over. Thank you again God bless you. Hernes Joseph Well Caretaker
