$5,000 covers the cost to drill one well, providing a village with a central water supply. There are 300 million people without access to clean water in Africa alone. On average, women and children in Turkana, Kenya, walk four hours per day to fetch water that is already polluted and harmful to drink. This dirty water increases the unnecessary harmful effects of waterborne diseases that are easily preventable with clean water. Over the last few years, CRF has drilled more than 60 wells and provided clean, easily accessible water to thousands of people. Our wells have saved lives and transformed communities. We now have our own rig and are able to drill wells at half the cost! This gift will donate a drilled well to provide a central water supply to a rural community.
