WHY WATER IS CRITICAL TO LIFE
Water 💦 is Foundational to Health, Learning, and economic development.
Drinking dirty or unsafe water makes people sick, especially children are most vulnerable to water-borne diseases.
After drilling new wells, we monitor them over a number of years to ensure sustainability, care, and management transition to communities and school or Church institutions that host them.
As part of our Operations for sustainability, we conduct routine visits - done by our WASH teams to previous projects. During the visits, they assess water quality, obtain stories about how the projects are serving the communities; and review hygiene lessons to see how much of it has been learned - they look for behavior changes and the impact on the users, especially, the kids in the schools and communities/church institutions where we serve.
Since 2001 - RNM has drilled and rehabilitated about 450 well projects in Nigeria, Niger, and Sierra Leone. It’s encouraging to see happy healthy kids in many of the schools and other projects that are as old as 12-15 years still running. As they review some hygiene lessons like “Clean hands, clean hearts ♥️” they connect with many of the beneficiaries' and donors' love interests alike, through the good news of Christ the Living Water.
Excited to invite you to raise funds for a new pump, a good rehab, or new wells ranging from $500 to $2500 and on... to $5500 or $7500 for deep wells.

Other Reasons for Safe Water
Clean Water helps prevent abdominal worms in children and the adverse impact on their growth and development. We walk so they don't have to fetch unsafe dirty river water anymore for domestic uses. We walk so that kids can go to school and learn; we walk 1 day a year so that kids and moms can stop walking for days and hours fetching unsafe water. We walk so they can grow some food and vegetables near home all year round and be able to water their gardens - that's food security, and poverty reduction.
Safe water is just the beginning!
Be a Water Relief Ambassador or advocate.
