Well Digging

Water has at last been reached at our Windy Jammy site in southern Mauritania at 55 metres! Our well digging team have laboured heroically for many months, digging by hand through bands of hard rock to reach the water table. Now the 1000 strong local community will not have to go on 16 kilometres round trips to get clean water; nor will they have to drink dirty water from sources closer to which makes them ill. At the moment we are looking for a pneumatic drill to make digging our next well considerably speedier and cheaper. Anyone interested in sponsoring our next well, or the drill?
