175 people from Mumuli Village, Kenya received access to safe water when this spring protection project was completed. Before we protected the spring, it was contaminated with dangerous bacteria including E. coli, and thus was the source of many waterborne illnesses. Few people could afford firewood or chlorine to boil or disinfect the water. Some resorted to going to the forest to gather firewood which was not only unsafe, but also illegal. If caught, they received a costly fine. Now, as the project report states, “The community is already enjoying and rejoicing over their supply of safe, clean water."
