Help Stop Young Women from Being Raped and Killed Walking to Get Water

March 1, 2016

Help stop young women from being raped and killed walking to get water.

Young girls and women in Kenya walk miles all day long to find water and then bring it back to their village. Please help us to stop this dangerous work

I did this with them when I was there July last year and it is back breaking work in the hot sun. For many this is what they do all day long, every day, walking back and forth and the dangers are being raped on the walk and being attacked by animals thand other dangers!

Drilling a well will stop this from happening. Each well will cost $4K drilled up to 200 ft. This is a great price, all other prices we have been hearing over the past 2 years is $6K to $8K. Praise God, we now have a great partner that another NGO recommended and we need to raise $20K to drill at least 5 wells in 5 different villages.

Please, please take the time to read each of these emails below to see what a well will do for their children and people in these villages and how excited and thankful they are that we are going to finally give them a well and decide to help us.

Email from Rusia in Kenya:
Thanks brother Rudy for the kind email and for offering to fund a giant water tank for this village of three hundred children with quite adult like seven hundred. The tank will placed on government school to serve whole village. The name of the village is kimai village.
Also with drilling of a well is a different much larger village with small market near by it has around 700familes and about 2000 children. The village is called Bomasai village, it is on highland with difficulty of water is dire. The drilling of water will serve mass community members and reduce children’s deaths due to walking miles to get water and drinking of dirty water causing sickness and death.
I welcome you back to kenya and my request is to spend with us more days this time and move around with to show you various projects done by water for life and others. Greet your family and water for life.

Email from Elijah:
Dear brother Rudy,
Glad to hear from you again! Thank you Water4life Ministries for considering drilling a well for each of us for serving our villages with clean water.
Yes I remember last time in your trip we walked together on to the source a far distance to witness the kind of water we are taking! And the distance we travel. Other families work far than we worked. They work a distance of 2-3 miles in search of water and of which is not good enough for human consumption. At times it courses water borne diseases…which cause many lives to death.
The Well will serve 800 families plus 2500 Children. 4100 and more people will benefit from a drilled well.
Hope that this will help you find out on what is needed to be done.
Pastor Elijah.

Email from Susan:
Hello Brother Rudy,
I always thank God for you.
I’m well and also the God’s community that I work for.
When you wrote about drilling wells. I could not believe I was seeing those two great words. Very exciting indeed.
There is a village that is about an hour’s drive from where our project is, and which we shared our water filters with.
This particular community is in a serious need of water. The dirty water they have access to is about 10 kilometres away.
Please Rudy, accept that God has sent you to this community to give life to them.
According to Government statistics, there are 824 homesteads or families with a total of over 2540 members.
I trust God for plans you have for this great community to get WATER FOR LIFE through you.
I am particularly very excited and will pray with you for the project to succeed.
Meanwhile, in case you need photos of that area, kindly feel free to ask. It is quite a distance but I will volunteer to provide them.
Again, your assistant in Kenya can visit the area with me if you ask him.
I truly and sincerely pray for you and your family always.
God bless you.
Susan
