Lift Off!

January 28, 2021

We got wonderful news from Kakuma this week! The water tests related to the new well we've drilled came back with excellent results! The project has lift off!

What's next?

Our NGO partner agency (National Council of Churches Kenya - NCCK) will now oversee the installment of a solar pump, lay the necessary underground piping, build a raised reservoir, and install water kiosks (small buildings from which people can come and fetch water).

Our prayer is that these stages of development will be completed with high quality work so that the water blesses multiple generations of people in Kakuma. We invite you to pray with us as the project moves through the next stages. It is a complex environment.
