There was a tough time when the family did not have water for their lands, located in rural Georgia. Like everyone in the community, their water came down the mountain through small pipes, and it was not enough for everybody.
World Vision provided new, larger pipes that are fully enclosed so that the water doesn’t get contaminated. Community members helped professional installers set up the system. When the water comes into the community. They divert the water to different farms with sand bags. Each family gets water for 24 hours.
Family members say they now have 10 times the water they had before. They are able to water their land more regularly, which means their crop yield is much greater.
