We are very thankful to The Liberian Mercy Partners for providing the funding for a community well with a hand pump in our community.
This is the story of the work on the new community well and will be very important to not just help prevent the spread of Covid-19 but also in helping the prevention of common gastric type infections and typhoid. There is a distinct lack of fresh water wells in the local area and this will make a massive difference to the people in our local community.
Watch the video of the Well construction story.
