In Sierra Leone, thousands of people are returning to their villages following a long and devastating war.
Most people live simply. The sight of women balancing buckets of life-sustaining water on their heads as they traverse the long miles to and from a water source—be it lake, river, or stream—is common here.
But Latter-day Saint Charities has cut that trip significantly for many. The organization is building wells and other clean-water sources, placing pure, cool water closer to home.
“Clean water means happiness,” Sierra Leone native Margaret Nana said. “We see [the people who build the wells] as a savior because they are saving many lives.”
