Special thanks to Jennifer Ardon from CLWR for sharing information about Community Well Water Systems being built in Africa through CLWR.  Krista Schott and the “Kids” from God’s Kids Club initiated a fundraiser and on behalf of God’s Kids Club, Thank You for donating $1,892.15 to the St. Marks CLWR well project. With the matching grants from Faith Life Financial, we were able to fund more than one well!  CLEAN WATER IS SCARCE. According to the United Nations, about 1 billion people lack a safe source of water. The quality of this water varies depending on upstream contamination, the number of animals sharing the water, water levels and more. Access to safe water is an important part of most community development projects being undertaken by Canadian Lutheran World Relief in India, Mozambique and Zambia. Your donations and support helped to make a difference!   THANK YOU!
