++ LIVE FROM MALAWI ++
THE WISHING WELL 2020!
No way. The first attempt was unsuccessful. This morning only a few buckets of water came out of the hole dug last night. That’s not enough for a well that will serve nearly 1,000 people.
We move a few hundred meters, near a termite mound (that little mound you see in the second photo). They say water can be found there. I already imagine the endless discussions for the choice of the new place, a scene experienced several times. Everyone has their say, wandering around the village, first choosing a place, arguing the choice, then choosing another and finally the final choice of the new place. A scene that can last up to an hour! However, the final outcome is not guaranteed. We cross our fingers and wait for the new excavation …

THE WISHING WELL 2020!

The first well built in smart working! It is not over yet, we have reached 63 meters. We found some water but we have to wait a couple of hours to see if it is “good water” and enough for a well of nearly 1,000 people.
We wait and hope. 🤞🏿🤞🏿🤞🏿

THE WELL OF WISHES 2020!
++ ACQUAAAAAAAAA ++
Found! A worried Sunday but in the end we made it! I believe it is the well where we went deeper to find water, a whopping 63 meters! How beautiful! 1,000 people between the village of Maliwata and the two neighboring villages will be able to start coming here with buckets in a few days. It is not finished yet, in fact, the entire concrete base must be built and the well assembled. In the next few days we will do everything and so also the 24TH (!!!) well of the Well of Wishes will be ready. HAPPINESS.
