Giving Update: Sambuli Community, Nechesa Spring

February, 2021

A year ago, your generous donation helped Sambuli Community in Kenya access clean water – creating a life-changing moment for Timothy. Thank you!

Giving Update: Sambuli Community, Nechesa Spring

“It used to be difficult to get water from the unprotected spring since the terrain was steep and slippery, especially after rain.”

“The water was contaminated, but, since we didn’t have an alternative source, we used to consume it.”

“Now, my siblings and I like making several trips to the protected spring because it is easily accessible, the water is clean, and it was also beautifully constructed.”

“We hardly miss school because of sickness related to dirty water, unlike before, when we used to fall sick frequently.”

“Since fetching water from the spring is faster, I get time to study at home which has really improved my grades in school.”

“The water is safe and clean for drinking which has led to reduced waterborne and water-related diseases like typhoid, diarrhea, and malaria.”

“We are now healthy and energetic.”
