Tools to dig a well

Communities often use rivers as drinking fountains, swimming pools, laundromats and public toilets. Women walk long distances to fill dirty fuel cans or buckets with contaminated water to take back to their families. Catholic Relief Services teaches communities to hand dig shallow wells so families can have close access to safe drinking water.
