They formerly had to go 1 km away to get water. The water that they got was from a cement factory that every night provided water for the nearby villages. They were able to drink this water directly.

Sometimes government sends a tanker for water and they could get water for free. They are very happy to receive the water. They had been praying God would send them water.  2000 people can use this well of all faiths. They committed to share God's Love with those who came to receive water. This is a water pump. The switch is inside the church. It was all believers who came to the well dedication from the local church where Pastor Daniel is the Pastor.

He has served the Lord for 15 years. Has a wife and 2 children, ages son married in daughter in high school.
