Every person is made in the image of God, so every community has skills and gifts to contribute. Using the skills already present in a community, we encourage community confidence, so they are prepared to take on other challenges in the future, including larger and more complex ones.
Jesus says, “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” (Mathew 25:40). Some community members (such as orphans, widows, and those with disabilities) may need additional support. Special attention should be given by the community and our staff to care for those experiencing the greatest vulnerability.
To address those vulnerabilities, through a partnership, Healing Hands International’s (HHI) Walk4Water, and Water for West Africa (WFWA) successfully raised close to $15,000 to drill new water wells in communities across rural Ghana. Through the Moulton WALK4Water event, we were blessed by being able to drill two new wells in Northern Ghana communities.

“We are very populated in the village with over 1400 people. All of us drink from one functioning tap. Often the tap doesn’t flow, and we have to wait two or three days for five gallons of water for our family. The wait and the daytime heat can make life unbearable. We are thankful to God for the kindness of those donated to change my life.”
