Baptist Global Response
This village in Central Asia will soon have access to clean water. A BGR-funded effort to cap a spring above the village and pipe it to a reservoir near homes has progressed very well. A BGR partner says residents have contributed greatly to the effort, showing up to their work times with no reminding.
The area has never had enough clean water. A major earthquake destroyed it in 1998, and locals had to relocate the village down a mountain. Now, BGR partners have helped them move the water supply closer to their houses, and this project has allowed relationships to form between partners and villagers. Before the project, locals were wary of outsiders, but now, they invite partners into their homes.
