A group of men from Baton Rouge, most attend First Presbyterian Church, donated a well to the people of Nyabigugu Village, Rwanda in 2008.
Mrs. Cuzuzo tells me that since the well was given to the community there is a huge reduction in illness and worms. That in the beginning some people were still fetching water from the swamp but after they realized that the people taking water from the well were much healthier fewer and fewer people would go back. No she says no one takes water from the swamp. She estimates that some 500 families are now using this water source, this is much larger than our original impact estimate if correct.A highlight is that her baby, Arini (in her arms), was born just when our crew drilled the well and she has security in knowing she has clean water for her.
These little guys were hanging out as their mothers were collecting water. Check out this incredible game of bottle caps, very much like playing marbles back home. they even have their favorite caps weighted with different materials like clay, mud, etc.
Thank you gentlemen for your expression of Christ’s love for The Least of These Brothers of Ours.
