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.
In February 2007, we traveled to this Northwest African nation to train several local and international missions groups in hand augering and in soap-making. All of the details and logistics were coordinated by nationals. We worked from Bamenda with the project being in Ntem, a village of about 2,000 people.
