Prior to these builds, villagers walked up to three miles each way to retrieve water for consumption and washing. And depending of the need, multiple trips were conceivable. More often than not, people shared water resources with animals. Because the water was contaminated, waterborne diseases including bilharziasis and typhoid were the norm.
"LifeVantage has been a big supporter of Wells of Life this year", said Nick Jordan, President of Wells of Life. "Without organizations such as this, our mission to change the world one well at a time would be impossible."
