Give safe water to Orphans Field Report 3

Dear Donors,

Raindrops may be tiny in shape and size, but cumulatively they make rivers flow.

Thank you for your supporting our clean water and sanitation project.

I wanted to give you a quick progress update from the field.

Currently, the clean water project is still in its initial stages because the finances raised haven’t met the threshold for us to start the second step, which is drilling.

So far, we have raised $7,035 out of the $22,000 goal. But we’re getting closer.

The remaining steps remaining for the water project and their costs are below:

Activity steps Cost Status

  • Hydro-geological survey $546 - done
  • Drilling $7,644 - pending
  • Solar pump installation $5,460 - pending
  • Tank and its accessories + Pipework $10,920 - pending

We feel hopeful progress in bringing clean, safe water to these children and remaining optimistic and patient.

Once more, we thank you for your endless support of our project to give safe water.

Would you consider sharing this project with others?

Warm Regards,

Give safe water to 82 Ugandan orphans Report 2

Dear Donors and Friends,

Thank you for your supporting our clean water and sanitation project. I wanted to give you a progress update. 

Through your effort, we have so far raised $6,539 out of the $22,000 goal. We still need to raise $1,105 to meet the drilling costs. But we’re getting closer. 

We feel hopeful for making more progress in bringing clean, safe water to these children.

Uganda is battling with the second wave of the COVID 19 pandemic, which has forced the Ministry of Health and the President to call for the second lockdown of schools, churches, public gatherings inter-district travels, among others are on a ban.

Unfortunately, this has come at the wrong time because it is the dry season where water is scarce. Due to this situation, the vulnerable children in our care need to help fetch water from a distant place where they mix with other community members and lives at risk of contracting the virus.

Once more, we thank you for your endless support of our project to give safe water.

Please consider sharing this project with others.

Stay well and safe.

Dear Friends,

We cannot thank you enough for your generosity to support the St Mugagga Boys Home Clean Water and Sanitation Project. Through your efforts, we were able to raise $5,879 out of the $22,000 goal. Thank you very much for your generosity towards the vulnerable and orphan children who directly benefit from this project.

We have made progress putting your gifts to work and make good progress already on this project. We just completed the geological survey to help us know the availability of safe underground water. The survey discovered we have safe water 80 Meters below the surface which is excellent news.

See the attached Geological Survey with the research and pictures of the proposed well site.

Our next step is to start drilling and putting the pump installation. We hope to begin this work very soon. Now our need is greatest during the dry season when we have the most water scarcity. The drilling company cannot start work to dig the well until their labor gets funded, and we are eager to begin this next step soon.

The remaining steps remaining for the water project and their costs are below:

Activity steps

  1. Hydro-geological survey ($546) - Done
  2. Well Drilling ($7,644) - Pending
  3. Solar pump installation ($5,460) - Pending
  4. Tank and its accessories + Pipework ($10,920) - Pending

Thanks to your support, we feel hopeful for the progress so far. We can and will bring clean, safe water to these children.

The power of a seed is not in its size but the quality of its product. May the investment you have made yield multiple blessings for the children in our care. Thank you again for your support.
