Zainabu lives in a Sierra Leone community called Monkey Bush, where the local Nazarene Church installed a borehole well in 2016. She walked four to five times a day to collect dirty water that made her six children sick. By the end of the day, she would have spent three hours walking back and forth. When the Nazarene church in Monkey Bush drilled a borehole well through an NCM WASH project, it provided families like Zainabu’s with clean, safe water.
“The difference is so much,” she says. “Now, water is constant. Before, the distance brought suffering to walk so far carrying water.”
