In September 2010, non-profit organization charity: water raised $1,091,138.00 through their mycharity: water individual fundraising campaigns. They would eventually reach the fundraising goal of $1.7 million with the help of East Lake Church, supporters at charity: ball, and other donors.
The mission was to provide every Bayaka in the Moale Village of Central African Republic with access to clean water. The event was broadcast live for all of CharityWater‘s supporters to see. After two failed attempts, wells collapsed and the live drill was unable to reach water for the people in Moale.

On July 20th, 2011, the promise — made 10 years ago — was fullfilled. See the inspiring story unfold in the video below.
