Water 2007 - $34,000 raised
The group returned to Washington State, and motivated by what they had done and seen began to speak to other parishes about the possibility of joining them in 2007. In July, 2007 a group of 10 people from St. John Vianney and Mary Queen of Peace (including the parish pastor from Mary Queen of Peace, Father Kevin Duggan), visited Ghana. Prior to coming, they had raised around $34,000 to drill boreholes in West Mamprusi District in the Northern Region. These boreholes were drilled with Catholic Relief Services who matched some of the money. The end result was 8 water producing boreholes located near schools in small villages.
