Summary

The most vulnerable in rural Uganda are babies, children and the elderly. They easily fall sick because they are forced to consume water from contaminated and unprotected sources, shared with the grazing animals. For just $3,000 Mission 4 Water can provide a whole community with a new borehole right in their village, providing everyone with clean and safe water. This not only improves the health of the people, but education and wealth also improve with reduced sickness.

Challenge

Mission 4 Water is a registered NGO and has been providing clean water in Uganda since 2012. But there is a waiting list of desperate people who are requesting clean and safe water in their villages, schools and health centres. We have the solution, all we need are the finances. Please support this amazing project. As they say in Uganda "Water is Life"!

Solution

Mission 4 Water has a team of strong Ugandan drillers and all the equipment and experience necessary to produce more boreholes; it is only lacking the resources. With your help we can provide more people with clean and safe water.

Long-Term Impact

Clean water promotes a healthy life. Children do not miss class because of diseases like cholera, dysentery, hepatitis A and typhoid, all of which could result in the death. Women don't have to walk and carry heavy jerrycans of water long distances back home. Adults are able to work better to earn a living to provide for their families when they are fit and healthy
