Even though Martha was very skeptical that clean and affordable water would ever be a possibility for her and her neighbors, she now marvels at all that has been done to build a water system that will serve 10,000 people. Without water, life is hard "especially for older women who can't go [to the river to collect water] because the paths are in bad condition," says Martha. "When the project is finished, it will be a blessing because we will have water in our homes."
Just $175 provides one family with water. $25 gives one person water for generations to come!
