  • There was a well across the street that was 150 ft deep. It ran dry and they get no more water.
  • The water well we put in is 320 ft. 
  • There are 6 adjacent villages that will also use this well, each with about 30-40 houses.
  • They have a stream where they get water from, but it is a 2km walk.
  • They dug a hole in the stream to collect good water.
  • In the summer time, the stream dries up and it becomes very difficult to get water.
