Into-Africa has partnered with Living Water International (LWI) to bring water wells to the nation of Sierra Leone. At present, we have three water wells, and hope to install four more in the upcoming year. Each well provides safe, clean water to an entire village, via piping run directly from the well to faucets located outside the church property. This allows for reliable well maintenance without the risk of tampering or contamination to the village’s water supply.
Water provision is the cornerstone of LWI’s work, demonstrating the love of God by helping communities acquire desperately needed clean water, providing training in well drilling and pump repair, and sharing “living water” gospel of Jesus Christ. Since their inception in 1990, LWI has completed more than 18,000 water projects across the world.
LWI began operations in Sierra Leone in 2007, in the wake of the nation’s civil war, during which many water wells were destroyed. Despite 10+ years of rebuilding, the country still faces significant challenges, but with safe and reliable access to water, we can considerably improve the quality of life for the people who live there.
Each machine-drilled water well costs approximately $18,000.
