  1. Clean Water Project (Budget: $9,000) for 3200 people

Access to clean water is urgent for communities in Lypets, Ruska Lozova, Mali, and Velyki Prokhody. We plan to drill wells and implement water treatment to address this pressing issue, ensuring the well-being of 3,200 residents. After Russia blew up the dam serving the area, the flood washed farms, cemeteries, and chemical storage, which caused water contamination. The issue of drinking water is urgent for this area for 3 300 residents. For these communities, drilling a well with subsequent water treatment is necessary.  Local communities have committed to assist in the station’s setup, including providing a place, power supply, and station maintenance.
