$97 provides one village with a hand pump and maintenance tools to gain access to drinking water for years to come. Transporting water is a backbreaking chore for women and children. A water pump would relieve thousands from hours of work and provide access to water. Many women and children must walk for hours to access and retrieve water for their families. Not only is it labor intensive, but there is no guarantee the water brought back is safe to drink. Water pumps make accessing water much easier. Instead of walking long distances to water sources, or drawing heavy buckets filled with water from an open well, a person can easily access the water by using the simple tool, saving hours of hard labor.
