Waji Village

Story from Moses Munda

Moses is one of the Church
teachers in the Episcopal church of the Sudan. He had been appointed by
the administration of the church to lead the church in this village. Not
only that mosses is married to one wife with five children.

Moses told me the problems
they had in their church as they tried to organize for any fellowship
for the Christians. One of the major challenges was how to get clean
water for the Christians. They had to walk three miles or more to get
clean water, and yet the nature of the roads does not allow bicycle to
be used .the roads are full of big rock and deep potholes.

“As we continued to pray to
our loving God, we believed strongly that He was going to answer our
prayer. Today God has answered our prayer May His name be praised. May
God bless the hands of the donors and those who worked hard to drill
this bore hole for us”.

Story from Christine Adupiyo

Christine was born in Gwari
village .she got married to Taban who is a resident of Waji village.
They have five children. Christine tells her story.

“Before I married my husband,
we had been getting drinking water from a bore hole. But when I got
married life changed. I started drinking water from a stream. This water
was so dirty; animal drinking from the same source and the water smells
cattle urine.

I got a lot of problem as I
continued drinking from this stream. My children were suffering from
worms. Not only my children, I started suffering from body rashes
followed by stomach ache and today as I talk, my first-born child who is
twelve is having typhoid.

I am so grateful that God has
answered our prayer. The water we were taking was only to keep us alive
though we were suffering from diseases but this borehole is giving us
hope for better future. The money used for treatment is going to be used
for raising our children and getting better education .May God bless
WHI and all those who are with us in prayer.

We're just getting started, check back soon!

Project Type

Abundant water is often right under our feet! Beneath the Earth’s surface, rivers called aquifers flow through layers of sediment and rock, providing a constant supply of safe water. For borehole wells, we drill deep into the earth, allowing us to access this water which is naturally filtered and protected from sources of contamination at the surface level. First, we decide where to drill by surveying the area and determining where aquifers are likely to sit. To reach the underground water, our drill rigs plunge through meters (sometimes even hundreds of meters!) of soil, silt, rock, and more. Once the drill finds water, we build a well platform and attach a hand pump. If all goes as planned, the community is left with a safe, closed water source providing around five gallons of water per minute! Learn more here!
