Working with our partners, Disciples4Water establishes, trains and supports local teams of water well drillers dedicated to providing clean water in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We also support water-related healthcare, education and agriculture projects through direct funding and in-kind donations. Through the coordination of mission trips with out church partners, we are able to show donors the impact of their dollars in the Congo.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Disciples4Water has not been sitting idle or shut down. We continue to send funds to the DRC to pay our drill team’s compensation. The drill team is working to maintain existing wells and is conducting WASH training to local communities where wells exist and where D4W has already targeted for future wells.
If you have any questions about our work during these times, please email us at D4W@ppwest.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Our current emphasis remains focused on the Equatorial Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The provincial capital of Mbandaka is also the location of the national office of our DRC partner, the Community of Disciples of Christ in Congo (CDCC). The CDCC, affiliated with The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), provides a strong home base for our local drill team comprised of young Congolese men.
This drill team is drilling throughout Mbandaka and the surrounding area.
