The Blessing of Water

In the past few months, Fr. Francis Folleh, C.S.Sp, spent time in Sierra Leone, supervising the construction of a well. People in a village had asked to have the well built so they would not have to walk 5 km+ 2 – 5 times per day to carry water for their daily needs.

There were some surprises – like finding water at 18 rather than 12 meters, but the community effort of digging, pulling soil up from the hole, cementing the hole and installing the pipes helped the construction go as smoothly as possible.
