Orapada Well

Project completed

This project was completed successfully on 27th Nov 2018

The Orapada well is located in Kumi District in Eastern Uganda where many people still have to share water sources with their animals and sadly, a number of children have been lost due to the consumption of dirty, contaminated water. 

Previously, the community had been walking 3km to access water from an unprotected spring and this caused a lot of water related problems within the community.

This new borehole will change their lives as it provides safe, clean water and therefore reduces the number of water-related illness and the number of hours spent walking long distance to collect water. It was the 665th well drilled and provides fresh water for 340 households.

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