Water for the Kuvé Community
by Komlan Koudadje, Vice-President
Bonding with Children Foundation
Bringing water back to the Kuvé community is probably not the biggest challenge Bonding with Children Foundation ever faced but it still is a great accomplishment that warms our hearts.
My name is Komlan. I'M 42 years old. In 2016, I met Victor at a Walmart in Des Moines, Iowa. Victor was a classmate of mine in high school. I was glad to see him again after 20 years.Together we decided to pool our resources and work on some projects as a nonprofit.
Six months later, the people of Kuvé joined hands together with Bonding with Children Foundation volunteers to set up a water pump in the only deep well in the village. In Africa water can be a precious commodity. The village celebrated the new well as a grandiose event. Ladies were happier because they used to walk miles to collect water from other villages. No more worry about sicknesses related to dirty water and diseases common in the village like diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea, and vomiting.
The team was happy to contribute to putting a smile back on the faces of the Kuvé community.
