Drilling for LOVE in 2018
We started 2018 with a party. Literally!
For two years the Chinkuli School has been without a working borehole. With over 1,000 students coming to school from all over the area — they were desperate for a new water source! For two years the school has begged the government to fix their borehole with no results!
So when this news landed on our ears in December - we knew we had to step in! We drilled the new borehole just a week after Tony and Carol landed in Zambia. Because this had been such a great need for so long for so many - the school even threw a party to celebrate!! 13 Headmen and over 150 people came to celebrate something we take for granted everyday — access to clean water!!
This borehole will serve thousands — not just the 1,300 students but all of their families and surrounding areas! What an incredible opportunity we had to give love through giving clean water!
And the coolest part of it all is we get the chance to do it again!! The Moriah Community School, where all our Life Okendewa children and most of the kids you see in our pictures go to school, needs our help! They also have no borehole and we want to drill them one next month. If you’re interested in providing clean water for the 250+ students at Moriah, please contact us.
