Acokora Health Centre is located in Otwal Sub-County, Oyam District, Northern Uganda where people still believe sharing a water source with animals is a way of life. For generations the community here have not had access to safe, clean water and sadly a number of lives have been lost due to the consumption of dirty water.
The community had been walking 2km to access water from an open unprotected well and this caused a lot of water-related illnesses. However, they did not have any other alternative but to continue using a contaminated water source.
This borehole was the 709th well completed by Fields of Life and it now provides fresh water for the Health Centre and 78 surrounding households.
Thank you to the generous donor who has provided this life saving gift!
