Clean Water Project Update
CW4K has started digging another well in Zambia, Africa. The new well at the Christian Calvary Missionary and Orphanage in Mufulari will  supply clean water for the missionary inhabitants and people from the surrounding community. The well will also provide irrigation for the missionaries gardens that provide food for the orphans and poor people in the community. 
 
CW4K needs to raise an additional $3,000 to complete this project in 2014. Imagine, just $3,000 away from suppling hundreds of thousands of people with clean water and food. Please consider donating to help us out, thank you!
