The Behwalay Water Project is complete! Behwalay is a village in Eastern Liberia on the border with Côte d'Ivoire. Over the years it has suffered the effects of civil war and crushing poverty. Its 550 residents are struggling to overcome this history and are working to rebuild their community. They have built a clinic and are building a well that will serve the clinic and a nearby school. Seventy five percent of the money has been raised and construction will start on the well this summer. Learn about the Water Project here.
