We are so glad to say that five wells have been completed this year so far (thank you to all who have contributed to the work)
The need for safe water is so great we therefore launch our appeal for donations to dig four more in the Kyegegwa District of Uganda.
The cost of each well is £2000 a total of £8000 ($10000).
All donations can be given from our Facebook page
Wells for Uganda H2O or www.churchontheway.net
If you would rather do a bank transfer you can get in touch with me for details.
We have been able with donations and from coming in under budget with the previous five wells to start this campaign with £1000 already in the bank.
Many thanks
Eddie

Having arrived back from my trip to Uganda I wanted to post a short video of a well we dug at the end of last year. This is what it's all about the supply of wells in various communities giving people a safer water source. We are planning to dig three more wells in the next period of time but need further finances to do so. Each well we dig we set the budget at £2000 and endeavour to keep within that budget, thankfully we have been successful with each well so far. Please give your donation towards the next well using the online store.
( check out Facebook Wells for Uganda H2O) Many Thanks Eddie

Sincere thanks to everyone for your continued support its very much appreciated.
I go out to Uganda on the 26th April for one week to check some new sites and to sign off the wells we dug at the end of last year.
Am looking forward to the trip as usual and visiting a completely new area Kyegegwa District.

NEW VISION NEWSPAPER UGANDA REPORT by Watuwa Timbiti

At a communal water spring in Kinawataka, a low-end squalid suburb of Kampala, children with all sorts of repulsively dirty containers are not only collecting water, but equally littering the water point with rubbish. Visibly, the stagnant water down the collection point is such a distasteful sight.
At a short distance away, some ladies are drawn in washing clothes, some of which contain child excreta, used water runs off to the water point, thus contaminating it. Such gross hygiene abuse is not limited to the Kinawataka spring, it is a replica of what happens at most community springs or water sources such as taps, in other poorly planned and densely populated areas of Kampala and Uganda as a whole.
Many areas in the country have no access to safe water and improved sanitation. Consequently, lack of access to safe water and absence of sanitation integrity due to contamination of most water sources has over time spurred repercussions, both of an economic and health nature, especially water-related diseases such as diarrhoea. 400 die daily of diarrhoeal disease According to the minister of state for primary health care, as cited by the New Vision of February 25, over 400 people die daily of various infections, including diarrhoea, dysentery, cholera, typhoid, ebola and marburg fever. -

WELLS FOR UGANDA

This Video is a member of the well committee (Mr Isa) being trained as regards to the importance of the maintenance of the pump.

What an amazing team of workers we have in Uganda.
The work has been completed today (they are 3 hours ahead of the UK) at Butinindi Ntenjeru Mukono district Uganda.

We have finished our work for this year and trust we will be able to dig more wells in 2017, to be able to do so we do need financial support.
As has been said in various reports it takes £2000 ($2800) to complete each well so all donations for future wells are being received now at www.churchontheway.net go to online shop.

Thanks to all who have supported the work over 2016.
