Some community details (provided by our in-country partners)
The 400 residents of Samuel Cooper Community in Montserrado County didn't have access to safe water for three weeks after the hand pump on their well broke down. Children and adults had to begin drinking from creeks and rivers that, because they are contaminated, left some residents sick with diarrhea and other waterborne illnesses. But then Lifewater, thanks to our donors, has repaired the hand pump and restored the grateful community's source of safe water.
