Our Well Projects

Project #2: New Well in Famine-Stricken Ethiopia

STATUS: 100% funded, awaiting report

Our second project may truly bring water to those who need it most. The drought in east Africa has left villages in Ethiopia without rain for over two years. Living Water International is ramping up efforts in what may be some of their most life-saving work there to bring water to those who are dying without it.

  • location: Eastern Ethiopia
  • cost: $20,000
