The Okobua Well is located in Bukedea district in Eastern Uganda where the consumption dirty water is a way of life.

Prior to the drilling of the borehole the community was surviving by drinking contaminated water from a hand-dug well. This resulted in many members of the community spending much of their small income on treating diseases and unfortunately a number of people lost their lives.

However, the new borehole is providing water for 115 households with an average of 9 people per household. That means that over 1,035 people in Okobua now have access to clean and safe drinking water.

Thank you to Joymount for funding the Okobua Well.
