THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS AND SUPPORT!
Our third clean-water well was fully funded at 7:55AM on the morning of Wednesday, April 24th…a moment I will never ever forget. Words cannot express my heartfelt and deep appreciation to you for helping with this very special cause. It’s not easy asking friends for money–I honestly hate that part–but without hesitation, you opened up your hearts and wallets to help me help some very special children and families in The Central African Republic obtain something so essential as clean water.
So what’s next? Our teams (Water For Good) both here in the US and in Africa have already begun moving on this project. Our next step is to survey the area and find the exact spot to drill for the well. So much planning and preparation goes into installing a well–both physically, logistically and even bureaucratically–it’s a ton of work on so many levels, but I look forward to keeping you updated every step of the way!
This is our third well. You made our first happen in 2017 for the Nyakoi Akuoro Village and in 2018 for the Aminit Border Village. I’m looking forward to traveling to Berbérati in September. The village is located deep within the Central African Republic and is more challenging than our two previous projects.
From my family to yours–and from everyone in the Berbérati Village whom you’ve given life to…thank you!!!

About this campaign…
To raise funds, R Dub and Sunday Night Slow Jams is partnering with Water for Good to build a well in the village of Berbérati. Each donation will reach the people of the Central African Republic with safe and reliable water.
We’ll provide updates and reports from the field. Locally trained technicians maintain the flow of clean water in all of Water for Good’s wells, year after year, visiting the community (like Beberati) long after campaigns are over.
Through your gift, hope is being restored as dignity, health, joy and love flow out of your generosity and into the life of every man, woman and child living in Berbérati. In addition, the well will be open to the surrounding villages as well. Thanks to you, they too will reap the many benefits of safe and clean water.
1.The source is located 3km away. The villagers have to trek for all this distance looking for unsafe water.
2. During dry spells, the water dries-up.
3. Rampant fights and abuses at the current source when the amount of water reduces.
4. Regular sharing of the same source with animals.
5. It’s a habitat for mosquitoes.
6. Due to the turbidity of water, the waterborne diseases like Typhoid and Cholera have been registered.

Through faith and his grace, May he see you through as you think of saving the men, women and children of Berbérati.
LAST YEAR’S MISSION: SLOW JAMS WELL #1 – NYAKOI AKUORO VILLAGE
I will never be able to put into words the feeling, of after flying 10,000 miles, and then driving for eight hours until the roads ended and turned to dirt, THEN driving another hour, to finally reach THIS…
An ENTIRE VILLAGE–hundreds of people, from babies to elders–all waiting for us, with signs, banners, music, smiles, and most importantly LOVE. There are no words.
I explained to the village that the well was not my doing, but a gift from YOU. They wanted me to tell you how thankful they are and that they love you!
