Stories From Our Well Repair Team
When you know the human story behind a well repair, it helps you to understand our commitment to this ministry. These children attend Sibanyati Basic School. For 5 years their well was not working properly and finally earlier this year it stopped pumping water. This caused the children and teachers to begin searching for water in local shallow wells that produce bad water. As the hot season approached the water situation became critical to the point that the leaders of the school were prepared to close the school. They contacted our ministries and as you can see the water has been restored and the children can refocus on getting an education.
Because of well repairs that we did in the Chiefdom of Nyawa the officer in charge of this chiefdom wrote in a report to the Kazungula District Health officer that the work of our ministries was directly responsible for reducing the number of cases of dysentery and diarrhea in Nyawa.
Because of our work in Nyawa one of the district doctors contacted our partner Tom to request our help with the Sikaunzwe clinic and their water crisis. They were without any water source so a water tank was brought from Livingstone. Even then there was not sufficient clean water for the women who were pregnant waiting to birth their babies along with all the other needs of a medical facility. Our team got the necessary parts and repaired the well. The district doctor gave thanks to God for the work of our ministry.
Each well repair has it's own story of lives that are affected by the restoration of a source of clean water. Without your partnership these stories would not have a positive ending. If you are not a financial partner with us you can help us respond to more of these needs.
