Water Well Opportunity - a GUSHER for thousands! 

 

Recently we hit an absolute gusher drilling one of our new water wells!! 

 

The UN is going to re-drill and expand the main pipe from 6” to 12”.  A water ministry out of South Carolina is providing solar panels and a diesel back up. This should provide water, and water stations, to about 25,000 refugees, which is super helpful when there's a virus running around. Essentially this takes it from one hand-pumped well to lots of safer water stations.

Our part is to buy and install big pump motor.  This project is similar to well #5 funded by BLESS - pictured right - and an opportunity to provide clean water for drinking, bathing, cooking & farming.
