Your Life Calling

Drilling Wells, Saving Lives

A Maryland businessman is helping to bring clean water to thousands of villagers in Ghana

Update: Your Life Calling recently heard from Ken Wood, the well driller in Arica. He just returned to the U.S. after his 21st trip to Ghana serving 20,000 people. On his trip he was drilling ever day with his crew, and used 4 miles of piping.  His operation is expanding from Ghana to Tanzania in east Africa where he’s already sent his rig and water truck. He commented, “Scared of every move but it seems to work out. Thanks again for covering this story. It does make people pay attention to something so important, each well is crucial.” — June 23, 2011
