Project completed

This project was completed successfully on 22nd Jun 2014

Well Number: 363

Community Name: Orajai Well

Sub County: Asuret

District: Soroti District

Number of households: 185

Orajai community is located in Soroti District in North East Uganda. This is an area where access to water is extremely difficult. In fact there were many reports of people, especially children, becoming seriously ill from drinking contaminated water. In some cases, dying.

The children had previously been walking 3km to access water from an open well which was contaminated from waterborne diseases such as typhoid, cholera and diphtheria. This well will benefit 185 households therefore providing clean water for more than 1,665 people.

Thank you to the Medway Bridge Marina for funding the Orajai Well.
