Last week, World Vision informed us that they are nearly half-way finished with our well project in the city of Gemena in the Democratic Republic of Congo (Gemena has a population of approximately 170,000 people and sits near the exact center of the continent of Africa).
Our financial contributions from last year have gone toward a three-well project that will provide access to clean, safe drinking water for more than 36,000 people!
The finished project will include:
Improved sanitation facilities, with accommodations for people with disabilities.
Hygiene and sanitation training.
Water point management committees for each new water system.
Estimate completion date is December 2014. Thank you, Grace Church, for supporting this awesome initiative!
