In the village, the municipal water supply is very erratic at times. They have learned to just make do with what they have.
For drinking water, they have to take a safe water jug some distance away and pay to have it filled. In the picture, you can see the blue container that they store water in for when the supply is off.
For other water, there is a pump a couple hundred feet from the children’s home. When I was there, the pump was dry and in the picture, you can see a man behind the bush drawing water using a bucket from the open well.
Both the pump and the open well have somewhat brackish water that is unsafe for drinking.
In town, some of the more well-to-do homes and businesses have their own water tanks to provide water when the municipal supply is not working. This would be ideal to have to take care of all the children but right now it is not affordable.
So now you see a little more of their daily life.

Also, if you share the Facebook postings when you find them interesting, it will help spread the word about our children.
If you would like to hear more about the children’s home, I am available to speak to your church, missions group, or other organization.
