The nearly 100 community members sleeping on the Pont Rouge Church of the Nazarene’s property after losing their homes to the earthquake now have access to clean water 24 hours a day, which has given them reason to celebrate. Previously, this community was completely dependent on water trucks for their water–and these trucks are not reliable. People were at times waiting for hours or even an entire day without clean water. Now, the entire community can come to the cistern for clean, safe water.
Rebuilding communities after the earthquake will take years and the work is immense, but providing clean water resources is making this process easier and the future brighter.
