Building Wells in a Refugee Camp

Water is vital for life but may be far below the surface. To supply refugee camps or villages, we provide the stimulus and basic equipment to dig a well. The users of the well provide the manual labour, which may be considerable.  It can take several months to dig a well and then cap it off to protect it against contamination.

  This well had to be abandoned because the sides kept collapsing.

 This is the replacement so far. We still have several months to go before it's a fully functional well.
