CHIN AND CHO ARE THE BEST OF

FRIENDS.

THEY LIVE WITH THEIR

GRANDPARENTS ON A FARM IN

THE COUNTRY.

AND AS MUCH AS THEY LOVE TO

HAVE FUN, THEY ARE EQUAL

SERIOUS ABOUT THEIR

STUDIES.

THERE IS NOTHING THAT COULD

KEEP THEM AWAY FROM SCHOOL

OR FROM EACH OTHER.

UNTIL THEY STARTED GETTING

SEVERE STOMACH ACHES AND HAD

TO MISS A

LOT OF CLASS.

DOCTORS DISCOVERED THE ROOT

OF THE PROBLEM WAS

CONTAMINATED WATER.

MY GRANDFATHER AND I HAD

AN INFECTION FROM THE WATER

WELL VERY FAR AWAY.

WE DIDN'T LIKE THE WATER

AT ALL.

THERE WAS SAND AND MUD IN

IT, AND IT TASTED VERY BAD.

Reporter: SO GRANDMA

AND GRANDPA ZANG DUG A WELL

OF THEIR OWN, BUT IT WAS TOO

SHALLOW AND THEY STILL HAD

STOMACH PROBLEMS.

I CRIED WHEN I HAD TO GO

TO THE HOSPITAL BECAUSE MY

STOMACH HURT SO MUCH.

AND ALSO BECAUSE I COULDN'T

GO TO SCHOOL.

I DIDN'T WANT TO FALL

BEHIND.

I WAS SO WORRIED ABOUT

CHO.

I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS

GOING THROUGH BECAUSE I HAD

FELT THE SAME WAY.

I REALLY WISH THESE

STOMACHACHES WOULD GO AWAY.

Terry: CHEN'S WISH CAME

TRUE WHEN CBN CAME TO THEIR

VILLAGE AND DUG A DEEPER

WELL FOR THE FAMILY.

WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY IS

THE WELL IS RIGHT IN OUR

BACKYARD.

WE DON'T HAVE TO WALK

DISTANCES FOR WATER

ANYMORE.

NOW WE HAVE CLEAN BAUD

WATER AND PLENTY OF IT.

IT IS THE BEST.

THERE IS NO WELL BETTER THAN

WHAT CBN DUG FOR US.

Terry: THE TWINS ARE

BACK IN CLASS AND FEELING

BETTER THAN EVER.

I HAVE NOT BEEN SICK ONCE

SINCE I DRANK THE WATER FROM

THE NEW WELL.

THERE IS NO SAND OR MUD

IN THIS WATER.

IT IS SO SWEET.

CHO AND I ARE SO HAPPY.

THANK YOU, CBN.
