Testimonial

Greetings to Lifewater & Sponsor,

This letter is written in appreciation for the handpump you have provided for us. We had sent several requests to the local government for such an assistance which never came. Your positive response to our needs are highly appreciated and we are blessed by your generosity. As we agree at our meeting with you, we have constituted a village well committee to take care of this gift from you.

Sincerely,

Abdullahi Gana, Chairman of Well Committee
