The entire community want to give thanks to you all. May the Almighty God be with you as you carry on your work. Thank you Isaac Johnson Town Chief

Project Summary

On March 6, 2014, a health & hygiene workshop was held with 22 members of this community of over 800 people attending. Weldeh Town is located along the Monrovia kakata highway Lower Careysburg. This town has a population of well over one thousand residents. Children are in the majority and suffers the most when it comes to diseases that are contracted from bad water sources. This community needs a lot when it comes to sanitation, latrine of course is also a dying need for the people of Weldeh Town. River Bo is the only source of drinking water for the people of this community. This rivers passes through the town making its way by the dense jungles of Weldeh town. The people of Weldeh also use the Bo River for washing and fishing as well. Most of the people here are farmers and does local craft work for their livelihood. One can tell from the look of the skin of most of the kids that skin rash is very common in this area. The residents also complained of running stomach outbreaks that affects almost the entire town at times. The anxiety for the newly erected pump decorated the faces the women and children whom bears the greatest burden when it comes to fetching water. “Today April 5, 2014 is a great day for the people of Weldeh Town, said Bro. Isaac Johnson the young man trained as pump technician and also a Sunday school worker at the only local church in the town.
