CBN.com -- Peru

Four year old Xiamara never stops working hard for her mom around the house. However, the first time the little girl ever went to collect water for her mom from the community “open pit” well, Xiamara fell in and nearly drowned! 

“I heard the neighbor scream, “Xiamara fell into the well!” her mother recalls.
 
The young girl struggled to stay afloat, but because she swallowed so much water, she lost consciousness.   Her mother was finally able to her daughter’s limp body out of the water.  She remembers her first thoughts at that moment:   

“I said, “No, my God! Lord, please don’t take her away from me.”     
 
“Later when I saw my daughter breathing, I felt like she had been born again. Then I said, ‘Lord, thank You, thank You!’” 

When Operation Blessing heard of this dangerous open pit well in their village in Peru, we drilled them a new, safer well, which provides fresh drinking water for more than four hundred people in the area.

For Xiamara’s Mom, however, the best part of the new well is that it is completely enclosed and safe for Xiamara and her friends.   

“We have clean water all day, and a safe place to get it!  My family and I are grateful to Operation Blessing for the well they built,” concluded Xiamara’s mom.
