Testimonial

Dear Lifewater & Sponsor,

This community of approximately 500 people are mostly farmers and would have to walk 3 km to get water from another well. Thank you for this new well and it is not enough to say to you. It's been very hard for us to walk to get good water for drinking and cooking. We were told not to use the water at the river anymore because cholera had killed so many people in the area.  The first thing you need to live is water, we did not have money to pay a company to drill a well for us, and then we found how to contact Lifewater, and a new well is drilled. Thank you very much.

Sincerely,

Eliphet Jacques, Well Caretaker
