As we have journeyed with the Borana in southern Ethiopia over this past year, it has become apparent that there is an urgent need for water. Very few wells exist in the area where we are working and their only other source of water, which is parasite-ridden, is evaporating daily due to the severe drought.
With a desire to see them have disease-free water, we've partnered with a local drilling company (IAS), which helped with the water project in southern Sudan.
Today, we have now drilled 31 deep-capped wells.
