Water after 20 years for Lewisburg

Imagine living in a community that has little or no access to clean water because the only water source is in dire need of repair. In such a community, residents, including women and children, have to travel great distances to obtain water from springs that are sometimes unhealthy.
These were just a few of the challenges that faced the over 1,800 residents of Lewisburg in St Mary who have been without proper access to clean water for the past 20 years.
Just recently, however, charity organization Food For The Poor, in partnership with the Parish Council of St Mary, responded to the plight of the residents by providing the community and its environs with safe, clean and potable water.
