Because the Model Farm’s cistern is its lifeline, a committee made up of local farmers, community representatives and JustHope staff, have voted to reinforce the cistern’s infrastructure, building a stronger foundation and stabilizing it against future flooding. This will ensure the cistern can handle heavy rains and supply an adequate water source to the farm for years to come.
The cistern holds 10,000 liters (2,642 gallons) of water, and this project to strengthen it will cost around $2,500. So, $1 donated = 1 gallon. Read more about this project.
