In Togo, 7-year-old Grace smiles as clean water gushes from the newly drilled borehole in her community.

“I remember how I shed tears sometimes while walking miles under the sun looking for water. When we were informed that Compassion was going to bring clean water to our community, we were so joyful. This borehole is our rescue. Before, children had been falling sick at least three times a month. Since we have been consuming this water provided by Compassion, our children rarely fall sick.”
