A message from the community

The entire congregation and community of St John Catholic Church Sullu appreciate Lifewater for the kind gesture in drilling a well. Now our community will enjoy clean water. We appreciate you. We pray that God almighty will continue to protect you and provide your organization with resources to continue the work of your hands across our country. 

  -- Lawrence A, Community Leader

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

The village of Sullu faced water shortages for a  long time. Children and adults had to walk to and from a dirty stream that put everyone at risk of gastro-intestinal illnesses. Roaming pastoralists, or cow herders, bring their livestock to the stream -- further contaminating it. Through the generous support of our donors, Lifewater visited Sullu recently and drilled a well at St. John Catholic Church which is meeting the water needs of the entire Sullu community -- a much healthier community.
