LUSAKA WELL COMPLETED IN MUFULIRA ZAMBIA

10th December, 2013CW4K3

Dear Greg,

Thank you for being a blessing to the need!

The Lusaka well was finally done on 8th December 2013 and the people of Msisi compound which has an estimated total population of 400,000 (four hundred thousand) people can have access to clean water as the 2nd UN World Water Development Report have said and I quote; “World Water Day 2007 will be guided by the theme ‘Coping with Water Scarcity’ under the leadership of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.”

CW4K1As a result, adds the World Health Organization, a child dies every eight seconds from drinking dirty water. It is estimated that 5,000 children die every day as a result of drinking unsafe water. And, every 21 seconds a child perishes from waterborne diseases such as typhoid, cholera, and dysentery. A UNICEF Report found that about six million people are blind today from Trachoma, an eye infection spread mainly through poor hygiene caused by lack of adequate water supplies and unsafe environmental sanitation conditions.

CW4K5The UN warns that unless action is stepped up, the number of people without access to safe water will increase to 2.3 billion by 2025, with the number of those who die from unsafe water expected to jump sharply as well.

Ensuring access to safe, clean water worldwide is critical. Not only is it essential for successful agriculture, food and energy production, It is a children’s issue because water is vital for healthy development and survival”. These populations will depend on this well!Thank you for partnering with you (CannedWater4kids).

The digging of the well costs:

  1. Sitting and drilling one borehole $5,028.00

  2. Diameter steel casing and yield estimates $1,565.00

  3. Borehole equipping includes supply and installation of hand pump $2,700.00

  4. Transportation to Lusaka $510.92

  5. Sending of the money by Vicki through money gram $196.08.

This is how the $10,000 US dollars sent to us was utilized.

May the good Lord richly bless you for being a channel of blessings to these needy people.

Yours sincerely in the Lord,

BISHOP BENSON CHIWOMA
