Dear Lifewater & Sponsor,

We want to extend our thanks and appreciation to you for providing us with safe drinking water. For the past years we have suffered a lot. 

We pray that God will promote you so that you will do more good work.  We also have learned a lot through the workshop you conducted about good health.

We have made a lot of mistakes in the past about our own health, but through what we have learned this will change.

Thank you,

Hilary Freeman, Youth Leader


Project Summary

Sumo Town is located along the Bong Mines Handee Highway, a few miles from Handee School within the Fuamah District. The population of the town is approximately 601 people, mostly women and children.

There are no toilets in this town, therefore the run off when it rains flows into the rivers and streams which is the only place for the people to get drinking water. 

This new well will save many lives here, protecting them from sickness.

On July 26,2017 a Health & Hygiene workshop was held for the people, 20 people attended.

This well was drilled as part of a cooperative NGO initiative to provide safe drinking water to all Liberian's. Thanks to ''The Last Well Inc.'' for their coordination and support!
