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.
Two wells were installed in the Donga Mantung division of the northwest region of Cameroon. The project was to establish wells at a primary school in the Equato/Fung village. Our project lead, Vise Chin, purchased all parts for this project at the local market. A two-person team was sent to the village beforehand to gain the support and commitment from the community.
