A message from the community

I thank Lifewater for your support in giving our community clean water. We thank you for rehabilitating our well. We all say thanks a lot. May God give you more wisdom and power to assist more and more! 

  -- Habakuk John, Community Chief

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

Chief Habakkuk has been leading his community during a severe water crisis after the only local well stopped working.

"We have a stream but it is very dirty and causes different kinds of illnesses, including our children falling sick with diarrhea on a regular basis," he says. "This makes us spend the little money we have at the hospital and with buying medicines. We are grateful for the rehabilitation of our broken well (including a new hand pump). May God reward you abundantly."
