Project Summary

Garkpelleh Town neighbors Handee Town and is near the St. Paul river which the people rely on for a source of water to bathe, wash clothes, fishing, cooking and drinking along with a hand dug well.

On July 27,17 a Health & Hygiene Workshop was conducted for the people of this community with 31 participants who will help educate others within the community. Some of the training included in the workshop was how to handle foods and their environment, ways to purify water in the absent of a pump, and safe practices in the absent of a latrine.

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!
