Testimonial

Dear Sir: We the residents of Zorkpah's Town in Margibi county write to express our thanks and appreciations to you and the entire Lifewater family for helping our town with a basic hygiene training workshop and also for the construction of a handpump for our town. For too long we have suffered from drinking bad water, our children will no longer travel long distances to get water or neither will they get sick from drinking bad water. May God bless the works of your hand. Respectfully yours, The residents of Zorkpah's Town
