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

Residents of Kpaku would get their drinking water from a stream they shared with cattle, where the risk of diarrheal diseases and snake attacks was very high. Women and girls had little time for housework, school, or other activities because they had to make several trips to and from the stream each day. They are now free from this dangerous and time-consuming burden, thanks to a new well in the village that Lifewater Canada donors generously funded.
