Dear 2015 Summer Campers and Staff,
We just received the following information from Water to Thrive about the well that is being built in Africa because of your donations!
District: Werei' Lekhe'
Site Name: Damariam May Asela
GPS: 12.11074, 39.19067
*This represents the number of beneficiaries that live within a one kilometer radius of the project. More typically, 3-4 times that number of beneficiaries will be using the project regularly.
In addition to providing clean, safe water to hundreds of people, your well will significantly reduce the amount of time women and children spend collecting water. Women will gain the time they need to take better care of their families and engage in income-generating activities. Children will have more time to go to school and be absent less often as water-related diseases become a thing of the past.
How cool is that? We also were able to have a sign placed at the well site, so we are placing this Bible verse there.
"As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God." - Psalm 42:1
Thank you for helping with this project!
All Things Through Jesus,
