    in honor of Dr. Paul D. Stevens and The New Covenant Missionary Baptist Church, San Antonio, Texas
  • Approximate population of the village: 1,700
  • Number of beneficiaries of this project: 1,700
  • The villagers depended on a small river and a few streams for their daily water needs. Because of the use of unsafe water by the residents, diarrhea and dysentery, as well as other water related diseases and illnesses, caused the deaths of many children and the elderly people in the past.
Descripton of the village & people: Residents are mostly of the Vai ethnic group with a small population of the Mende tribe from nearby Sierra Leone. Islam and African traditional beliefs and practices still greatly influence this area today. Many of the villagers raise crops such as rice and cassava, while others make charcoal to sell. Many basic social services are still lacking in this village.

Description of the well dedication & Salvations: Reverend Victor E. David, Sr., opened the dedication ceremony with a prayer. He took this opportunity to share the Gospel and the love of God with the villagers.
Expression of Appreciation:
Osman Myel, Senior Elder: "We feel happy today and thank Almighty God for our friends who helped us with this water problem. We believed that no one cared for us, or even knew we existed. But now, we know that we are loved. This new well will help keep us safe and healthy. Thank you!"
