Water Well in Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone is in the midst of a water crisis. Throughout West Africa, Sierra Leone you will find many who are still drinking water from rivers that provide unclean and polluted water. Listen to this Sierra Leonean woman tell her story of water crisis.

“Long ago our river was clean. Today it is dirty and full of sickness. Malaria, cholera and fever. My little Susan almost died from diarrhea. Our family was all effected by the dirty water. But we needed it, we all need water. We knew there was a problem. We saw the problem. But we are a poor village and could do nothing to change it. I was sad and afraid of losing a child. Then, last year, we received a miracle. It was a well! We were given the supplies and also the guidance, but the men of my village built it. They built it for our family. For all the families!”
