A message from the community

I write to deeply acknowledge and appreciate the excellent work of Lifewater in providing clean drinking water through the drilling of a well. This kind gesture will make the community feel relieved and enhance general hygiene among members. We wish Lifewater long life and prosperity in all your endeavors. May the Lord God almighty prosper all the sponsors of Lifewater.

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

Few people in the Kuchiyako Kuje community could afford the luxury of clean water. Most relied on a river and open hand-dug wells. These sources were contaminated -- putting people at risk of diarrheal diseases -- and they required much time and effort. To lessen everyone's burden, our donors enabled Lifewater Canada to drill a well in the community that is providing enough safe and easily accessible water for everyone. Residents thanked Lifewater donors for their "uncommon love."
