WATER PROMISE

Kansiime - Head Teacher, discussing her newly donated water project in Uganda

The reason why we requested Living Water Uganda several times for a water source was because the only source nearest to the school was the community valley dam, located three kilometers away. The other source is a hand-dug pond that requires pupils to cross the road, pre-disposing them to traffic accidents. The school enrollment, attendance and performance was adversely affected. Thank you for this well.

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!

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.

Truly the teachers of the children are very happy, along with the children, and all the population of Wan. May God accompany you and bless you. Thank you!

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.

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.

We asked for help many times over, but we received none – until today! Because of you, we have received grace in our village.

Sami - Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Burkina Faso

I am very moved and at a loss of words strong enough to communicate our feelings. The parents of the school children would like to extend their thanks. I think that this will be like a new school year for all of the students and all the teachers, with this rehabilitation. It will be a pleasure for everyone during the academic year ahead. We thank you!
