wash Project

Ireget Well

Project completed

This project was completed successfully on 12th May 2018

Ireget is located in Kaberamaido District, Eastern Uganda, where the majority of the community members had believed that access to safe, clean water was a luxury because for generations they had been depending on water from contaminated water sources.

The Ireget community had been collecting water from an open well that was 3km a way. The water in this well was dirty and caused many of the community members to get sick with water-related illnesses. Additionally, many valuable hours were lost while family members walked to collect the water. 

This new water source has been very timely for this community, it now provides clean water for 135 households. This was the 674th well completed by Fields of Life.

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