Charity:Water Update – The Escola Santa Isabel de Minhewene, Mozambique

Because of the generous donations during one of our recent campaigns, we were able to partner with Charity:Water to drill a well for a school in Mozambique.  In June of this year, a professional team drilled deep into the earth to reach fresh underground aquifers, then capped the well with a hand pump. Drilled wells reach water that is inaccessible by hand-digging, and usually yield more water than hand-dug wells.

 Mozambique underwent a civil war that led to extreme poverty and severely unhealthy living conditions. In addition, floods and earthquakes worsened the growing water crisis. With the 22nd highest child mortality rate in the world, every year 82,000 children in Mozambique don't make it to the age of five. 

 Recently, Mozambique has made incredible strides toward development, and providing access to clean water is a major priority.

 We thank our donors for helping us support Charity:Water in this effort, which supplied clean water to 300 people.
