During the Advent and Christmas period we raised enough money to purchase a well in a Kenyan village which we was presented to Dr Daleep Mukarjii, Director of Christian Aid when he lead our service on January 17th.
Digging and constructing a 100ft well will make a huge difference to an entire village in rural Kenya.
With no clean water nearby, it falls to the women and girls to walk miles to the nearest river – often repeating the journey several times a day.
But with a well in the village, the supply of clean fresh water close by means that women can work and contribute to their family’s income.
It also means that girls can go to school regularly and receive a good education that will help them get a job in the future.
