St. Thomas ACK Church – Lunza

Monday, September 14th, 2009

A new well has just been completed at the St. Thomas ACK Church in Lunza.  This well is located about 30 km from Kakamega, Kenya.

Lat. 00.228830N  034.541290E

The well serves the 520 church members in addition to the entire surrounding community.  The church is a convenient and publicly accessible location for this well.

In the video, you’ll meet Mildred, a mother of triplets who today is benefiting from this new, clean and safe source of drinking water.

A water committee of 4 men and 5 women oversee the project and will help ensure its long-term sustainability.

Prior to the well being installed, members of this community walked at least 2km to a passing stream nearby where the water was neither clean or safe.

This well was funded by:

Individual Donations:  May 14th, 2009 – June 6th, 2009
Berryville High School – Berryville, AR
Oregon Episcopal School – Portland, OR
