Makindu Children's Program borehole drilling program continues to benefit the children and staff at Makindu Children's Centre. The shamba (farm) is now being irrigated from the borehole through existing hoses and piping. As donations continue to come in, a pump and new pipes will be purchased and installed to irrigate the shamba and bring clean safe water to faucets within the Children's Centre. This valuable and precious gift of water will revolutionize the way of life at the Children's Centre making cooking and cleaning much easier and more efficient. When the project is complete, the Children's Centre will be able to sell this water to the general community thereby supplementing the income of the Centre and helping sustain the nutritional, educational and healthcare programs provided at the Centre.

Please consider another donation to Makindu to help us complete this worthy and valuable effort. Your donations truly make a HUGE difference in the lives of these orphaned and vulnerable children.

From all of us at Makindu Children's Program and Makindu Children's Centre, ASANTE SANA!!! Thank you so very much!!!
