Springbox: Before and After


A significant portion of the population gathered their water at the natural spring in the town center. This spring (pictured to the right) is contaminated through agricultural runoff, livestock watering, animal inhabitants and poor upkeep. Standing water is also a natural breeding ground for mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases (i.e. malaria).


The mud pit is now a capped spring with a constant flow of clear water. To all who gave to make this happen, thank you. Your generosity will improve the health for the entire community. We've received reports that the villagers are thrilled and have even begun to buy white clothing knowing the water for washing won't turn everything brown!
