There is a desperate need for water supply in Sierra Leone. Young people have to walk 3 to 4 miles everyday just to fetch water needed for their households.
In addition some of the water these young people collect from the streams is sometimes unhealthy and unsafe for drinking due to upstream contamination such as human feces etc.
As a result WCC aims to construct an additional five water wells in the community adding to the one already donated as an approach to counter the poor water situation.
WCC water well construction is currently undertaken by a developing agency in Sierra Leone. Community self help and fundraising also help meet part of the cost of input to promote the effectiveness of the service.
