We got it!!! Finally, after two unsuccessful attempts, at a depth of 55m we have found WATER! With another borehole, many of the problems of the people of Gourcy will be solved.

“Not good. Yesterday’s drilling down to 80m brought no results. Today there was a second attempt, also down to 80m and again a failure. We will keep on looking.” Such alarming news was being received from Burkina Faso over the weekend. Not a drop was to be found at the sites designated by the researchers. More experts showed up on site and one pointed out a spot that our project managers had previously thought of in terms of: “it would be cool if the well could be right here”.

The third attempt, right at this spot, was a spectacular success, launching a fountain of water and mud from the borehole site onto the eagerly awaiting onlookers. So there we have it! Today the team on site is pumping out the water. What remains are laboratory tests as well as securing and finishing off the site. Such wonderful things can happen thanks to people who trust us. We bow down low to them!

We would like to be able to share more success stories here, because thanks to a victory like today’s, someone’s life will really change. Someone will get a job in a new part of the garden, and thus a chance to support and feed his or her family. Instead of taking the risk of emigrating, he or she will work hard to turn this part of the world green, ensuring a future for themselves and their family.

Every life saved, every human story that is brought to the side of good is a success for us. Every such success needs its patrons. We send a total of about 275,000 PLN a month to all the locations, not counting the medical supplies we buy and send from Poland. Our social media reach, which is being truncated, and the frantic exchange rate of the dollar require even more effort from us to keep this production of good in the world at the same level. In order to send as much support as before to all our locations before the end of the month, we need to collect the little over 51 thousand PLN of which we are short by 20 February. The fundraising continues! We only have you and thousands of people like you. Help us to keep the momentum going!
