ATLANTA, June 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeanette Falu- Bishop, Executive Director announces, Warriors in Recovery's new division "Return to Love," has sponsored the very first hand pump water well through a strategic partnership with the Africa Heartwood Project.
For the first time in history for the community of Soap Tree a clean water well is being provided by "Return to Love," through the Africa Heartwood Project that supplies safe water to the people in Liberia, West Africa.
"My programs are all designed to assist the warriors in finding and bolstering their sense of purpose. The wells symbolize a three-prong approach toward warrior recovery, international welfare, and home front veteran care," stated Jeanette Falu- Bishop.
Andy Jones, Executive Director of Africa Heartwood Project, along with his team began drilling the water well back in May of this year.
Mr. Jones ran into trouble while digging, they hit granite and were unable to continue, as their drill was not strong enough to break through the granite.
The only options they had were to quit, make it a personal pump for a single family to use or change the plan and do a hand dug well. They decided on a hand dug well and were able to ensure the village would be able to pump approximately 100 gallons of water a day, which is enough for the entire village.
Several weeks ago Ms. Falu Bishop announced a Kick off Fundraiser, helping warrior find purpose; whereby warriors can volunteer and through fundraising efforts raise money to travel to Liberia to help dig water wells.
The parent organization "Warriors in Recovery," along with Mrs. Falu- Bishop next project is to go to Liberia, West Africa in March of 2018, alongside other warriors to experience the training, and dedication to a cause that military veterans bring to a mission.
During the latest mission in Soap Tree when history was made, the moment the first drop of water came flowing out of the spout. It was a remarkable moment and exactly what the organization Warriors in Recovery represents. Showing Warriors that they can make the impossible possible.
