don't have access to clean water
Water Well Goal
will gain access to this
WATER IS LIFE
Water is the human bodies most basic need. It is unfathomable to think that there are over 2 billion people in the world today who lack access to such a commodity. Sadly, the people of the Congo are apart of that statistic. Half of the people in Congo are drinking contaminated water. Currently in the DRC, 1 in 6 newborns die from waterborne diseases in their first three years of life and a total of 17% of the population die due to unclean water.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
We want to see a reduction in infant mortality rates and an increase in life expectancy. We believe we can make this possible by providing access to clean water by way of water wells. At last, eliminating the chore and risk of collecting water from distant rivers everyday.
Kulungu for Congo is committed to drilling 200 water wells in the villages of Kasongo - Lunda.
Once funds are raised, we will be able to drill 6 to 8 wells per month with each well serving roughly 2,500 Congolese people.
That totals 500,000 people gaining access to clean drinking water!
$7,500-$10,000 per well
Many hands make light work! So, we invite you, your small group,
church, and family to give the Congolese a taste of hope.
In 2016, KFC drilled it's first water well in the village of Kingwangala. It was intended to serve clean water to 3,000 people. As of today, 2 million gallons of water have been pumped to more than 6,000 Congolese.
While we focus on providing the physical water to the people of Congo, we strive to go beyond and deliver the essence of "Living Water" to each person we serve.
