Before CC's Market was built, the nearest place to buy food or supplies was a 16 mile hike round trip, on foot!! To provide easier access to everyday needs, the ministry built this market for the villagers. This is a not-for-profit effort, to make life just a bit easier.It has a large secure storage room and sells rice, flour, corn meal, kerosene, oil, salt and other non-perishable items. Everything is sold at the same price that it can be bought in Cabaret, which is the nearest marketplace.
5,000 Gallon Cistern Installed - There's no reliable source for water in this village. People walk miles, to fill buckets of river water. There have been two prior failed attempts to dig a well and the nearby stream often goes completely dry. For now, water is "trucked in", and we were able to raise the money necessary to build an underground cistern, to store the water.
