Oturo-rao B Well

Project completed

This project was completed successfully on 13th Dec 2017

Oturo-rao B Well is located in Etam sub-county, Amolatar Distrct, Northern UGanda.

This community had been depending on a congested borehole which is 2km away. The responsibility of collecting water was placed on the women and children who had to walk a total distance of 4 km to access water and carry it home. This resulted in many children missing school hours in order to go and line up for water. Additionally, many women would miss out on doing the domestic work at home because they had to collect water.

The new water source is transforming for the lives for the women, children and men in this community. It provides fresh, clean water to 110 households. This was the 655th well completed by Fields of Life and we are so grateful to the donors.
