MAKE THE
WATER PROMISE

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.

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!

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!

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

Everyone in this community was used to fetching water from swamps. You would see people wandering in swamps in the evening. This well will stop us from collecting water that way. Swamp water has never been clean, but we were using it anyway, because we had no other option. It feels good to have clean water. We did not expect this to happen!

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.

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!

Holire, Village Chief, discussing her newly donated water project in Burkina Faso

The problem of water here in the village was always crucial. But with this rehabilitation it has diminished. I want to thank all those who have put their hands into this project. I ask also that the people of the village take good care of the things we have received thanks to God.

I feel now people understand how important clean water is and how it makes us healthy. Before we did not know and just drank water we could find. I am proud and thankful.
