Nyirabahutu - Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Rwanda

With this new well, it is a relief. The impact of having good water will not only be felt by this community, but also by neighboring communities and passers-by.

Thank you for this well. I think the number of people suffering from such
diseases will reduce significantly.

Akankwasa - Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Uganda

Our previous water source, a hand dug pond, had dirty water and would dry up during the dry season. Consequently, we were walking long distances hunting for water. My wife and young children have been relieved from the burden of walking long distances hunting for insecure water.

Ms. Twimukye - Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Uganda

We are grateful for the well in our village. Before, we solely depended on hand dug wells owned by an individual and he would sometimes chase us away to preserve water for his animals.

"It has taken some time to get this well fixed. It has spoiled many times. Hopefully now we will have a good water source that will last."

Esther - Nurse, discussing her newly donated water project in Uganda


For the past six years, as a practicing nurse in this community, I have been treating many community members for sanitation and water related diseases – mainly typhoid, dysentery and diarrhea. This I largely attribute to unsafe water sources... We thank you for this new well. This will go a long way in reducing the disease prevalence among the people in this community!

Pa Adikalie - Community Chief, discussing her newly donated water project in Sierra Leone

I am very glad for the new pump. This well has given us a lot of good use, but when the pump isn’t functioning properly, we have to go to the waterside. This will help us a lot. Thank you very much!
