How much better if this was the reality
So the Dinfara Water Project gets underway

Fresh, potable water throughout the village
People from other areas come to see the “Water from Eden”
The Clinic finally has fresh water readily available
Funding was through Club, District and FoundationGrants                              TRF                              Matc...
