Healing Hands International now has seven Illinois Rotary Clubs along with the District Rotary joining with us to provide funding toward water pumps, water tanks, and the water distribution systems in Kenya. This week God has provided the Ongata Rongai Rotary Club as a partner in the project. With the U.S.-Kenya Rotary Clubs working together an application for a matching grant with Rotary International can be submitted.
Kenya Rotary Club Member, King'ori Wathobia has 33 years of experience as a water and sanitation specialist and has offered his assistance in the development of the water distribution plan. When the water distribution kiosks for the three wells are completed another 15,000 to 20,000 people will have access to clean water. Currently 80% of Kenya's 40 million people do not have access to clean water.
