Water for the Oppressed recently ministered in Kakote Village of Kafue, Zambia. The hand pump was broken and WFTO repaired it in conjunction with providing a Health & Hygiene training and preaching the Word. We will continue to follow up in this community to further equip the local pastors. This hand pump serves 570 people in the community.
Water for the Oppressed first ministered in the Kanyanja area, of Zambia, in 2010.

Water for the Oppressed currently conducts training classes at two village locations and an additional training class, for approximately three churches, in the small town of Kafue.
