The need for clean water is paramount throughout the Democratic Republic of the Congo. According to the United Nation, half of Congo’s 80 million people have no access to safe drinking water. Deaths attributed to waterborne illness including cholera, typhoid, and dysentery. At any given time, 1 in 5 children is sick with a deadly waterborne illness.
Our Live Well: Water Well Program provides safe and accessible water to people who desperately need it to survive.
To date, we have installed a total of 31 water wells. On average, each well produces 4 cubic meters of water, equaling 4,000 liters of water daily. That’s enough water for 2,000 people per well per day.
A donation of $2,135 provides for the purchase, installation and follow-up maintenance of a water well. The name of your choice will be inscribed on the well’s plaque.
