THE WATER PROJECT
New Church has partnered with The Water Project to provide safe, clean water to multiple communities.
One project funded by New Church was for the Eshinutsa Primary School. Prior to the installation of a rainwater harvesting tank, students had to walk 1.6 kilometers to collect water from a spring that, when consumed, often resulted in Typhoid, stomachaches, and coughing. The new rainwater harvesting tank means 500 people now have access to a safe water source, cutting down on illness, as well as school absenteeism.
