“Before this hand pump well, I was going on walk for water to a river to a distance of 3 KMs away, so I was suffering pains of my body and legs. Now after installation of this hand pump well sponsored by ‘Compass Group’, my health condition is some relieved of body aches as I stand no need walking long. The water is greatly useful to our community. I am also participating in the health education program and improving my knowledge about importance of health and hygiene. Many thanks to the donor Compass Group and also thanks to Drop4Drop. As they are helping the needy God is sure to help them all”.
This project was undertaken as part of our campaign of projects that actively reduce carbon emissions. This project helped the community save their much needed wood which was previously being burnt daily to boil water. This project has also eliminated the many thousands of hours previously spent on walking to collect water.
