wash Project

Abur Well

Project completed

This project was completed successfully on 3rd Feb 2018

Obur is located in the Kaberamaido District, Eastern Uganda, where the majority of the community members had believed that access to safe, clean water was still a luxury.

For generations they had been depending on water from contaminated water sources. The Obur community had been depending on water from an unprotected open well that was 2.5km away from where most of the community members live. As a result, a lot of valuable hours were spent walking to and from the water source so many children missed out on school and women were unable to work.  

This new water source has been very timely for this community. It was the 685th well completed by Fields of Life and it now provides fresh water for 198 households.

Thank you to the generous donor who has provided this life saving gift!
