You can provide stateside support to Hydromissions teams by providing funding for a water and sanitation project. Every little bit counts, and every penny helps. If you choose to donate, your funds will be used to provide water or sanitation facilities in a community that desperately needs it, but, most importantly, your donation will also help provide people in remote areas access to streams of Living Water, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Ben and Nikki Buckner are the local missionaries from New Tribes Mission who are stationed in Galilo village. They hosted our team while we were there in Papua New Guinea. For this trip, we ended up boring five different holes, casing two of them and putting a pump on one of them. There were also some existing wells (4 in all) that had been dug and cased. They just did not have pumps on them.
