Completion date: 8/25/2015
Number served: 208
We gave 208 people safe drinking water with the completion of the Paolo Spring Protection project, which serves the community of Handidi Village, Kenya. Villagers had been drinking from a spring contaminated by surface runoff, animals watering in it, and people stepping into the spring as they fetched water. As a result, people suffered from waterborne diseases such as typhoid, cholera, and dysentary. That all changed in August when the Paulo Spring was protected.
