Water for Life

Will you stand with us and support the Water for Life campaign as we commit to providing people with safe clean water?

At Fields of Life we are deeply concerned about the lack of available clean water in East Africa. Especially among vulnerable and marginalized groups, such as women and children.

Many communities survive by drinking contaminated water, which often leads to diseases like bilharzia, cholera and typhoid.

Since 2009, thanks to our generous donors, we have been able to provide impoverished communities with clean water.

Our dedicated water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) team, drilling team and water partners work tirelessly drilling 10-12 wells each month. Bringing clean water to an additional 268 people everyday in 2016.

When the Nateelo village in Karamoja, Northern Uganda, received a borehole the village chairperson expressed their gratitude: “This is the start of a new chapter for my village. We can now safely cook food with clean water, wash our clothes, safely feed our animals and our children will no longer be at risk of waterborne disease. Thank You!”

We believe that clean water is a basic human right. Therefore, it is our goal to bring safe drinking water to over one million people by 2020.

We launched the Water for Life campaign in 2014 to help us reach this goal.

Will you join us in the Water for Life campaign?

A gift of only $6 a month can provide clean water for one child.
