Field Notes

Thanks to your generosity in early 2016, a community in in the Northern Region of Uganda has renewed access to clean water! The donations went to work rehabilitating a drilled well in a region where only 23% of the population has access to clean water.

Our local partners look to rehabilitate broken solutions whenever possible. When we repair a previously-built (non-charity: water) project, we save time and money versus starting a new project from scratch. We also train members of the community on how to maintain it for future repairs.

Families used to spend valuable time walking to collect water that wasn't safe to drink. Now, they're walking much less. Most importantly, the water they bring home is clean and safe.
