In February, 2008, a group from Anderson, SC traveled to the Kondie Community of Sierra Leone. The area is mostly Muslim, but many have come to Christ through free medical clinics (water will play a large part in future clinics as well). As for the drilling, the first hole was plugged by a rock accidentally kicked in the hole by a young helper. The second hole hit a big rock. The US team ran out of time, but the locals ended up finishing the well. Our thanks to Living Water International for graciously providing a nice hand pump for the completed well – always fun to partner with you guys. Future trips are planned to establish another medical clinic in a more remote location.
Started digging a well that the locals later finished successfully

Hydromissions returned to Isla Bastimentos, Bocas del Toro in Panama, where they drilled a well in March 2014. On this project, Hydromissions was going back to the same community of about 80 Ngobe villagers. During their first trip, the team found out that the village did not have a bathroom facility. Everyone practiced open defecation in the mangroves (swampy) areas of the village. According to WHO, 1.1 billion people practice open defecation worldwide. The health risks with that practice are extreme, especially when combined with an area where they do not have basic hygiene practices (i.e. don’t wash their hands).
