What I have seen today went straight to my heart. You have changed everything with this
pump. I, and our village, am full of joy.

We would have to go down to the stream to get water and it was visibly unclean. There were many activities happening upstream and we were downstream fetching the same water. It will be so different with this new well.

Keith, Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Uganda

I thank God that I have lived until now to witness his goodness, mercy and love. The many years I have lived in this community, I have witnessed young and old people suffer and die of sanitation related diseases. I strongly believe this new borehole, if well maintained, will save us from such suffering.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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