Water - We All Need It!

Thank you for your support of our ongoing effort to provide our kids and staff with clean water!    We continue to make efforts to find clean drinking water and dig a well at Ft. Jacques (our new facility) but all the while we must continue to filter the water we do collect and truck in so that we can keep our kids healthy.

A couple of things that have happened lately:

1. We broke ground on the new school building.    The school building will have a 60,000 gallon cistern underneath it and will be able to collect and store the rain water that comes off our big kid houses and off the school.   This will save us significant costs in having water brought in by truck.   However it will still need to be filtered.

2. We just obtained a donation of literally thousands of prepackaged bottles of formula.   Why is that important to clean water?   Because it is ready to serve, we won't have to use up precious clean water to mix the formula.   That will save us probably 3,000 gallons of clean water over the next few months.

 

Thank you for your support of our kids.    The need for clean water remains a very important and life saving priority!
