Alusine - Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Sierra Leone

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.

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!

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.

With this new well, it is a relief. The impact of having good water will not only be felt by this community, but also by neighboring communities and passers-by.

"It has taken some time to get this well fixed. It has spoiled many times. Hopefully now we will have a good water source that will last."

Pa Adikalie - Community Chief, discussing her newly donated water project in Sierra Leone

I am very glad for the new pump. This well has given us a lot of good use, but when the pump isn’t functioning properly, we have to go to the waterside. This will help us a lot. Thank you very much!

I thank you for this water! The water is clean, palatable and easily accessible. You have saved us from the burden of collecting and drinking dirty water.

Esther - Nurse, discussing her newly donated water project in Uganda


For the past six years, as a practicing nurse in this community, I have been treating many community members for sanitation and water related diseases – mainly typhoid, dysentery and diarrhea. This I largely attribute to unsafe water sources... We thank you for this new well. This will go a long way in reducing the disease prevalence among the people in this community!
