Bore Hole, Water Treatment House
Before the construction on Sanjweru Medical Center could begin a reliable source of water was a necessity. While that is important, of even greater importance is the drought conditions that annually plagues Sanjweru, Kenya.
There is a vicious cycle of drought leading to the drying of the area’s wells or malfunctioning pumps. The community must then find their daily water from streams, this contaminated water is a source of many bacterial and viral diseases including typhoid.
The well for Sanjweru Medical Center currently serves as the clean water source for God’s Hill and provides clean water to the community. Touching Lives has partnered with Water Missions International to provide clean water, even during times of drought, to the community.
We’ve added some pictures of the, now completed, well-drilling and Water Treatment System construction.
Then the righteous answered Him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee a hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? When saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25: 37-40
Water Distribution Program
February 26, 2014 ushered in the launch of the Sanjweru Medical Center (SMC) Water Distribution Program (WDP). By God’s grace Sanjweru, Kenya and surrounding communities are now able to access clean water!
The day started with the 3 person Touching Lives Ministry administrative team meeting with the Community Committee to discuss the details of the program. The community gave valuable input regarding how the WDP could provide for the needs of the community in the best way possible.
Then it was time to “unveil” the Water Treatment System and get a “sneak preview” of the clean water!
The day ended with us joining together in praising God for His faithfulness and goodness.
