We thank you Lifewater Canada for coming to our aid once again and rehabilitating our broken well. It is now working perfectly and we all have water. God bless you.

Some community details (provided by our in-country partners)

Onong'no Primary School in Kisumu County has 800 students, all of whom depend on a local well for their daily water supply. When the well's hand pump broke down recently, school administrators had to begin buying water to meet everyone's drinking, hygiene, and sanitation needs. The $55-per-month cost was such a great financial burden that the school could not afford to buy water every month, says teacher Hellen Ondieki.

During the "no water" months, Hellen says, everyone was thirsty and unable to wash -- creating a very risky environment.

But recently, through the generosity of our donors, Lifewater rehabilitated the school's well including completely replacing its broken-down pump. Now the students and staff have all the safe water they need, and the $55 that is being saved each month is being invested in vital school supplies.
