Dear Lifewater & Sponsor,

For and on behalf of the people of this community, I take this opportunity to thank you for providing us the community members a new well with hand pump.

Your gesture will go a long way in resolving the problem of no safe water this community has been struggling with for a long time. We want to appreciate you.

Once again we say thank you and may God bless you.

With gratitude,

Project Summary

Duazon community, Block A, is located along the Monrovia – Robert International airport high way about 30 minutes away from RIA, on the left hand side of the main road car road, this community is part of the Duazon main town, and is densely populated. And have a flat sandy land that is always flooded by the near sea water that over flood the water bands, thus contaminating the hand dug wells in the area.

The main source of Livelihood of the these people is fishing and petty trade as there is no good soil for agricultural activities so they  depends on center government for everything with respect to development.  They lack basic social services like safe drinking water and health care, or clinic in this area.  

The major source of water for them is the open hand dug wells and rivers. As a result there is a continue out brake of diseases like running stomach, skin diseases and other water borne diseases.  

The Health and Hygiene Team made a difference by conducting a workshop that has taught the participants how to keep themselves free from sicknesses and maintain a clean environment.

 

 

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!
