Donors Establish 3 Water Wells in Afghanistan
This summer, hundreds of families in rural Afghanistan received a very special gift—the gift of water.
These families live around three new water wells that were dug in their villages, which are near the road that connects Kabul and Paghman.
These wells were dug by Life for Relief and Development, and made possible by Life’s generous donors. These donors appreciated the need for new sources of clean drinking water in a country like Afghanistan, which continues to struggle along the path towards development.
The new wells mean that families will no longer need to travel long distances with mules in order to retrieve water from other wells. The new source of water will also help small farmer and herders, and is expected to provide an economic boost to the area.
Also this summer, Life’s office in Afghanistan distributed baskets of food to hundreds of families that house orphans. This distribution was part of Life’s Orphan Sponsorship Program, which regularly provides food, clothing, medical care, and education assistance to orphans that are sponsored by Life donors.
The cost of sponsoring an orphan is $50 a month. The impact of the sponsorship on the life of the young boy or girl who receives the assistance is often profound, and it can be life-changing.
