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

Borehole and Hand Pump

Girls and women walk long distances for water when safe water is very often right under their feet! Underground rivers, called aquifers, often contain a constant supply of safe water – but you have to get to it. No matter what machine or piece of equipment is used, all drilling is aiming for a borehole that reaches into an aquifer. If the aquifer has water - and after the well is developed - we are able to pull water to the surface utilizing a hand-pump. If all goes as planned, the community is left with a safe, closed water source providing around 5 gallons of water a minute through a hand-pump.
