A Year Later: Clean Water and Happy Ducks!

A Year Later: Clean Water and Happy Ducks!

Before the water point was completed a year ago Marthan O. found collecting water to be a challenge. “It was difficult bending to fetch water,” said 13-year-old Marthan. “Sometimes, you could fall into [the] water and have to wait ’til it was clean, which was time-consuming.”

But now, “It’s very easy to get water since there is no bending. I can go to the spring very early in the morning [and] at lunchtime, and the water is always clean. I was able to start a tree nursery. I use the water to irrigate my flowers [and] trees, and I used the water to build [a] swimming pool for my ducks.”
