Next step: Installing a tap system to deliver it

Thanks to generous support of the Kenyan Children’s Fund Water for Life project, the drilling team from Water Missions International has struck fresh water in Masii, Kenya!

The well will yield 2,000-5,000 liters of potable water per hour. Importantly, the water will boost the health and wellbeing of more than than 7,000 poor people by helping to eradicate water-borne diseases –- which kill one child every 20 seconds in the world today –- and by allowing the children to attend school rather than spend their days carrying tainted water from a riverbed 6 kilometers away or from earth dams that dry up during prolonged drought periods.

But the life-changing water is not yet available to the people of Masii. Water for Life still needs to raise $38,000 — the final piece of the $90,000 total project cost — to fund installation of the tap system that will deliver the water to the community, and to train local residents to maintain and, if necessary, repair the system.

Please consider a donation to help bring the Water for Life project to its happy conclusion. Click here to donate directly to Water for Life through Water Missions International. It’s easy and 100 percent tax deductible.

You also can support Water for Life by choosing a beautiful purse handmade by Masii artisans. They make thoughtful gifts and are available for a requested donation of $65 each. Contact Janie for more information or to make a purchase.
