How A Lack of Clean Water Affects REAL People

What happens to a community when clean fresh water is scarce?

Sometimes it's difficult to know what water scarcity looks like or how it affects communities. This video about the Tengecha Community Water Project in Kenya gives a glimpse into the life of a village that lacks easy access to clean water. While this issue causes serious problems for the quality of life in the village, it is clear to see that there is hope and joy in the community. The video also describes the locally driven programs from United Methodist Committee on Relief that focus on health and hygiene education and produce long-term solutions to the water problem. Watch and enjoy learning more about how this issue affects real people and what others are doing to address the problem.
