What I have seen today went straight to my heart. You have changed everything with this
pump. I, and our village, am full of joy.

I feel now people understand how important clean water is and how it makes us healthy. Before we did not know and just drank water we could find. I am proud and thankful.

Niragire - Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Rwanda

Everyone in this community was used to fetching water from swamps. You would see people wandering in swamps in the evening. This well will stop us from collecting water that way. Swamp water has never been clean, but we were using it anyway, because we had no other option. It feels good to have clean water. We did not expect this to happen!

Kadie - Hospital Cook, discussing her newly donated water project in Sierra Leone

I used to have to fetch water across the hospital compound and it was a lot to bring the amount of water that I needed to prepare food for the patients. I'm so happy this well has been rehabilitated and that even a new pump is inside to send water to the tank. I will have access to water at my sink. I'm so happy for this intervention. Thank you!

Thank you for this well. I think the number of people suffering from such

Holire, Village Chief, discussing her newly donated water project in Burkina Faso

The problem of water here in the village was always crucial. But with this rehabilitation it has diminished. I want to thank all those who have put their hands into this project. I ask also that the people of the village take good care of the things we have received thanks to God.
