Jerusalem Medical School Well is located in the Lira District in the Northern part of Uganda. This is an area that suffered greatly following a 20 year conflict in which a rebel group, The Lord’s Resistance Army terrorised communities. It led to the displacement of nearly 2 million people and the abduction of an estimated 60,000 children. Lira was one of the worst affected areas, any infrastructure that was in place was destroyed during this conflict. Since 2008 / 2009, people have been returning to their homes from internal displaced peoples camps and trying to relocated to an area where there is water.
This borehole will benefit 200 students and also the local church, therefore bringing clean water to over 600 people.
Thank you to Ecosan Services Ltd for funding the Jerusalem Medical School Well.
