Living Water Project in Vietnam - Final Update

I am beyond excited to announce that we've accomplished our mission of providing clean water access to at least 250 families who reside in impoverished conditions in these 4 remote villages of Trung Thành Đông, Trung Thành Tây, Tân Qưới Trung in Vĩnh Long, and Tân Hưng in Cà Mau of Vietnam to alleviate some their hardship and help ensure their survival. 

This Living Water Project is The Spices Of Life's first grand scale and most challenging project we've ever done. And it couldn't have been accomplished without your love, support and prayers. The cost estimate for this project was $17,200 and we received approximately $19,000 for 31 water wells at the cost of $200 each and 220 water urns at $50 each. The 31 wells were fully funded by a couple with a servant heart. Thank you Tony and Kayla! In the process of drilling for water wells and producing water urns, we ran into unforeseen obstacles that resulted in additonal cost and project delays. I am so grateful for all the help from chị Vân whom I barely knew at the time for her enthusiasm and financial support to move this project along.

Our Living Water Project success was truly a team effort. Together, we did something awesome! The pictures speak for themselves.

Once again, thank you to everyone for your love, trust, and generosity. As a token of appreciation, there is a dedication plaque with your name on each well and water urn that you donated. Please let me know if you haven't received the pictures. For those who wanted to remain anonymous, your plaques were engraved under The Spices Of Life. 

On behalf of The Spices Of Life, I would like to extend my gratitude and deepest appreciation to anh Ba, and chị Trâm for all the hard work and sacrifice that you've given for this life changing project. It warms our hearts to know that so many families now have safe drinking water for years to come.  The villagers have expressed their sincere appreciation for anh Ba's dedication  and The Spices Of Life's generosity.  As I mentioned in the previous posts, Anh Ba has been gracious for the opportunity to serve and we could not have found a more trustworthy project manager to handle the job.

Here's to our next project together. I prefer to work directly with a group so that we know exactly what we are doing and where our money goes. Any great suggestions are welcome. Please touch base with me via my email or messaging.
