Senai Foundation Inc. a non-profit organization was formed to find sources of clean drinking water in the African country of Eritrea. We are currently working with the Mealewia community which is 120 kilometers south-east of Asmara, the capital of Eritrea. This community has no drinking water. The women and children walk many miles a day just to get water to bring back to their families. We are going to be finding ways to bring water each village in that community.
