10/26/18 in Navajo Nation under Clean Water
For weeks, our vendors backhoe has been digging, laying pipes, installing a new septic system with a leach line or an outdoor water hydrant. They also installed indoor hot/cold water pipes into the home and replacing fixtures that enabled their team to connect homes to clean running water in the District 11 community of Wheatfields, Tsaile and Lukachukai on the Navajo Nation located in Arizona, where 2,361 families today still haul water to their humble homes.
We started off with eight projects in the three communities where currently six projects are completed. One is Bernice Chee, a grandmother and head of household to twelve family members, where six are children.
The letter her grandson sent us says it all. Thank you to the supporters of Running Strong who are making the gift of water possible.
