Bellingham, WA (PRWEB) August 1, 2007
JungleMaster Ministries received funding for a portable well drill from "Bridging the Gap By Giving". "Bridging the Gap by Giving" is a Chico, California NPO that funds Clean Water projects world wide.
The number one health issue in The Amazonas is intestinal problems due to contaminated water. With this drill, JungleMaster intends to drill and cap wells in every village that needs a source of reliable potable water.
Tom Clark, the Director of JungleNaster said, "Our intent is to ship the drill here to Bellingham, Washington and have our team figure out the process of operating a drill and capping the wells. Once that is done, we will take the drill to our Mission Center in Santa Rita Peru and begin there with our first well. Our goal is to make the center the communities place to come for any need that may come up and clean water is the number one priority. After that we will take it to all the surrounding villages and install wells, regardless of their affiliation with the ministry or their having a church or not. The peoples health transcends any spiritual issues and our hope is to be a help to all the people in our area of influence. We have already been asked by three local villages for wells and we have agreed to help."
JungleMaster also will be using the drill for Mission Team Projects. "Every year we take in teams from around the US to see the work we are doing in the Amazon and those teams like to have a project to do while visiting the villages, so that they can be a help. For 500.00 USD a team can purchase the materials and equipment to install a well in a village. Once on site they can be involved in the process from start to finish and leave a long term legacy for their group in the area. Its a huge blessing for everyone involved."
