Mapanga 1, Mpigi District, Uganda

“In our village we used to collect water from a pond, but during the dry season, the pond used to dry up with no water, so we had to collect water from the nearby community, yet still we had to wait for the dirt to settle so that we could use the water. We used to share the ponds with animals.The old people suffered mostly because they had to walk long distances so as to get water. Many community members became sick due to drinking dirty and contaminated water. This well will provide us with clean and safe water especially during the dry season.”
