“When we go to collect water, we can see worms in it, it looks dirty… I would like to have clean water so I don’t get sick.” – Kevin, 10-year.

In many places, drinking a drink of water can be extremely dangerous, even deadly. Unfortunately, many people in developing countries have no choice but to get their water from polluted streams or ponds - contamination that causes countless children to die unnecessarily from diarrhoea and typhoid fever. Thanks to your support, the Taasa Orphan’s Program WASH (water, hygiene and sanitation) programs are helping to change that.

People of Nansana in Uganda, lack of clean water are a crippling burden for Children like Michael and everyone in his community. To get water, Michael has to walk for an hour bear fêted and plastic jugs only to find it muddy and contaminated. But it’s all he’s got. 10-year-old Michael and her sister know the pain and sickness that comes from contaminated water. When they’re not in school, they help care for their grandmother. In order to get water, they frequently pack plastic jugs and containers onto a bike and make the difficult journey to the spring.

The Community Bore Hole

“Since I was little, I used buckets to carry water around,” Kevin recalls. “We have gotten sick because of the water. It’s muddy, but it’s all we have. It can take up to an hour to carry water home. When we are thirsty we drink from the water spring; there’s no time to boil.”

Though they face many challenges in most Remote Areas of Uganda, YOU can change Kevin and Michael’s lives this Day, and the lives of everyone else in the village. You can make sure they Kevin and Michael will no longer suffer the pain and sickness from drinking filthy water.
" I am glad I have been led by Jesus to donate this borehole that will save many lives, but I am not Jesus as the community calls me. When I funded this borehole project, they considered it a miracle ... "


GIVE MICHEAL WATER...

The water often causes sickness for Michael and the other residents of his community. “You know we don’t have water,” Michael says through tears. “Please make a miracle in my community. We are suffering!”
The cost for one bore hole in Uganda normally ranges between ($5800 – $6800) which is dependent on the contractor's reserve -price as well as the number of bore holes to be drilled, but the benefits and opportunities for supporting the community growth with such a bore hole are far greater than the cost itself.
