Dedicated in Loving Memory of Jennifer Lundeen Walker

  • Population: 1750 people    
  • Rate of Literacy: 65%
  • They always have a dry climate and in the summer it is very hot with temperatures reaching up to 120 degrees each day
  • We estimate this well will be used by 200 families per day
  • Location of well: In the yard directly in front of a church
  • Responsible for Maintenance and upkeep: Pastor John
  • Before this well, they had to travel more than 1km to get water from an open well. 
  • That was the only place they could get water. The taste of that water changed so those who could afford it began to buy water.
  • Pastor John started the church 3 years ago. There are currently 13 church members. He has 3 children, 1 boy and 2 girls.
