the young lady interviewed indicated that somehow "we were lucky". actually our clean water came about through the efforts of its citizens. the geographical proximity of natural sources of water along with man-made resevoirs and funding allow us to provide our communities with safe drinking water. world vision actually has a pretty good record of using the donations for their intended purpose. their revenue was at about $950 million with approx. $50 million designated as administrative costs. their website does not go into great detail as to the ongoing operation of the almost $14,000 deep-well. but they do have many ways in which to donate, even portions towards providing clean water.

It's a well for a whole village. They might have to go down pretty deep to get potable water, and you also have to arrange for pumping. Many areas are off the grid so that means solar power or a generator, as well as a set-aside for fuel and maintenance. If World Vision is doing their job they will be ensuring the well will be useful for a long period of time.
