Donate a well

Fatuma, 24, has 2 young children. Every single day, twice a day, she walks with her youngest son to a stream to collect dirty water for the family. She has to risk snake bites, sexual assault, and injury as she scrambles over long grass to get to the stream which is shared with animals. Her son has been diagnosed with Bilharzia, a water-borne illness linked to the stream, and she worries daily for the safety of her children.

“We walk frightened through deserted bushes that lead to spring well. Stories of snakes biting children had been told, and this scares me.”

You can transform Fatuma’s life.

You have the amazing opportunity to transform an entire community and bring protection to families like Fatuma’s.

You can provide a borehole in the Namatumba district, Uganda, a region with a population of over 300,000 people.

Not only can you bring life-saving water to hundreds of people like Fatuma and her family, but your support can bring healing and protection to this community, by providing pastoral support, water user committees, and a strong church connection.
