Abune Basilios Water Well - Celebration Time!

By: Eve PohlPosted On: March 22nd, 2023

Today, on "World Water Day" we are delighted to share with you the excitement we all felt last month when we celebrated the completion of the Abune Basilios School Water Well.

Many people came together for this special occasion and acknowledged all the contributions made by a wide variety of stakeholders. This truly was a "Working Together for Hope." School administrators, teachers, parent committee, hydrologists, water engineers, drilling company, government offices, Ministry of Education, Hope for Korah staff, board and donors were all on hand to witness the commemoration of the well and the garden area donated by Hope for Korah to the children of Abune Basilios School. Everyone is thrilled that this 220 meter deep well is now operational and a sustainable water source for 7000 children. And the presence of those children nearby laughing, playing and dancing throughout the festivities added to the joyous atmosphere and the significance of this achievement.

Lastly, we thank God for how He inspired people to give and brought together all the workers who collaborated on the building of this well so that the children have water today and for years to come. 

Thank you to everyone who helped to make this happen!
