Life in the Congo is hard…very hard. I’ve only been here for a few days and already I see how difficult it is for so many to live in this country. The issues seem to be endless and there are countless living in dire poverty. In the photo above you see a couple of children loading up their bicycle with containers of water, they will probably have to travel a considerable distance to push this heavy load back to their home. Then they will have to do the same tomorrow, and the next day, and so on, this is just part of their every day life.

At Outreach International, we are woking hard to ensure communities have access to clean drinking water. They probably won’t have a faucet in each house but they certainly won’t have to travel such great distances to have access to clean drinking water.
