A Year Later: "We thank you for what you have done for us!"

February, 2024

A year ago, your generous donation helped the Thawuya Community in Sierra Leone access clean water – creating a life-changing moment for Alie. Thank you!

A Year Later:

Alie K., 17, recalled what life was like in the Thawuya Community before his community's well was installed last year.

"We always drank dirty water during the time with no water point," said Alie.

Collecting water is now much simpler for Alie and the other community members and students in Thawuya.

"We thank you for the great thing you have done for us. [Us] children [will] never [be] sick again," continued Alie.

Having ready access to water from the well has made a difference for Alie, allowing him plenty of water for other vital things like performing his daily prayers and growing a garden to help his family.

"We fetch water from this pump for our mosque for prayers. Also, we use this water for watering our garden," concluded Alie.

Memunatu Kabbia, a farmer and the waterpoint caretaker, also expressed her gratitude.

"We thank you for what you have done for us!" said 38-year-old Memunatu.
