St. Thomas ACK Church – Lunza

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.

The well project at Vashele Primary School is now complete.  It is located in Western Kenya, near Kakamega.

Lat. 00.499370N Long. 034.754630E

The school is home to 632 students and the well will serve them and the surrounding community.  A local water committee of 6 men and 3 women is in place to manage the project long-term.

The well was funded by an anonymous donor to  our “Change Christmas 2008” Campaign.   After a long delay, we’re happy to finally show the results of their generosity.
