Final Phase of Water Project Fundraising
Give Water to 400 Thirsty Families
in Alendu, Kenya
The final fundraising phase has begun for this Water Mission – Rafiki Africa project. The goal now is to raise the remaining $22,000 as soon as possible so that work can begin on the purification and distribution systems to provide a safe water supply for the village of Alendu, Kenya and the Lighthouse Academy. The well was drilled in April of this year to ensure that there is a good source of water. Now the village residents are waiting for the rest of the system to be installed so they can drink clean water.
In June of 2015, there was less than $2,000 in the Rafiki Africa fund for this water project that will cost $76,528. In just over a year, we are within $22,000 of completing the fundraising for this project. Praise the Lord for the generosity of so many individuals, churches and groups who have made this possible
Once the remaining money is raised the work can get started to install the water purification and distribution systems, train the people in Alendu on proper sanitation, and train those who will be managing the system. Accomplishing all this can take from two to six months. Our hope is that Alendu can have safe drinking water in the early part of 2017.
