Well Repair: Bringing Clean Water to Zambia

Our Partners

Clean water from a repaired well in AfricaThe Zambia Water Project is implemented at the point of need through a partnership with Thirst Relief International and Seeds of Hope International Partnerships based out of the U.S. and Ndola, Zambia.

The cost to repair an existing, but broken well hand pump is between $300-$800. This will benefit 500 to 1000 people in need.

The cost to drill a new well is $3,000-$4,000. The Zambia Water Project has resources ready and waiting to repair 16 well hand pumps per month. Will you help?

...41 cents per person...each now has clean drinking water.

Proven Success

Thirst Relief has a proven track record. The pictures shown here are from well pump repairs they carried out in late 2007.

This project brought clean water to over 4,000 people for about $1,500. That's only 41 cents per person! Each of these people now has clean drinking water again.

Recent Well Reports

Two other well repairs were recently completed this June serving over 1,500 people.
