Brigid, 13, recalled what life was like in Lukala Community before her community’s spring was protected last year.
"The water point was not well constructed, with water spread all over the spring, making the place dirty and muddy," said Brigid.
But life is much better for Brigid and the other community members in Lukala Community now.
"We are now sure of drinking clean water because the place is clean and neat. Also, we no longer take more time at the water point than before," Brigid said.
Having ready access to water from the protected spring has made a difference for Brigid, allowing her to trust the water she is consuming and gain time for other important tasks.
"Getting water has been easy and faster than before, which helps me have [a] good time assisting my parents at home with domestic chores," concluded Brigid.
Thank you for helping Brigid access clean water and have the water and time to help her parents improve their daily lives.
Right now, there are others just like her in neighboring communities that desperately need safe water access. Your support will immediately go to work to provide a clean water project - and we can’t wait to introduce you to the next person you’ll help.
