from the field: northern Uganda

Blog Home | | from the field

Our water projects manager Becky Straw just returned from northern Uganda, where it all started for charity: water. In 2006, donors funded the first set of wells in a refugee camp that desperately needed clean water. Today, with your help, we have 94 projects in Uganda serving people with clean water. Our friend and photographer Esther Havens took some amazing portraits and got to meet the people we’ve served.

See the photo captions for a glimpse of everyday life — the story from this trip is coming soon.
