Church aims to build 1,000 wells in Africa

 | 

A nonprofit organization dedicated to providing clean water to the people of Africa plans to build or rehabilitate 1,000 wells on the African continent.

Water Wells for Africa, a project of The Breakwater Church in Manhattan Beach, Calif., has provided clean water to more than 140,000 people living in southern Africa since 1996, the organization says.

With 70 wells opened so far through the project, the church’s pastor, Kurt Dahlin, expects the new goal to affect the lives of 2 million people.
