Our partners at Thirst Relief International and Seeds of Hope reported back to us this morning that the donations from The Water Project have repaired another 10 wells in Zambia.

These repairs were funded primarily by Gilbert High School, led by Kimberly L..

A few other donors to our Well Repair campaign over the last few months provided support for the “Intulo-Basic-School” repair. (see below)

The most incredible part of this particular set of projects was how little repair work each well needed.  The repairs did great good for very, very low cost.

The only thing the was preventing thousands of people from having access to clean water were some minor, if difficult repairs.

Today, clean water is again flowing to so many who need it… over 6,500 people!
