Kantarama P - Farmer, discussing her newly donated water project in Uganda

I thank you for this water! The water is clean, palatable and easily accessible. You have saved us from the burden of collecting and drinking dirty water.

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.

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.

We wish you a long life and courage so that you can continue this good work for other villages. We want our relationship to be real before God and each other. We want this pump to last a long time, and we will thank the Lord always.

Finally, a new well was installed in our community! Thank you for providing us with this safe water. We will no longer walk long distances hunting for water from hand dug wells and dams.

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!

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!

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!
