Kachembele Community (Site F)


The initial visit by WFTO to the small community of Kachembele…population 200 found the hand pump had been broken for one month. The community attempted to repair the hand pump and dropped the hand pump into the well along with several chains and fishing tools. WFTO managed to fish out the lost chains, wire, and fishing tools. The community informed us that additional fishing tools were lodged in the hole so we abandoned hope of retrieving the hand pump. However, since the old hand pump was lodged in the well beyond 30m we simply placed a new hand pump above that pump. The new pump functions just fine and the community is thankful for the repair. WFTO shared the Word of God with the community and twenty people placed their faith in Jesus Christ. A Bible was distributed to each new believer.
