Until recently, the only source of water that the villagers had to drink was contaminated water from Lake Victoria. This dirty water caused illness, an increase in parasites, and even death for some.
Thanks to churches like Lighthouse Church, Life Church and Grace Christian Fellowship who have generously donated money to fund these projects, these villagers have clean water. Clean water is the first step in improving health and quality of life. So far, these water wells have given health, hope, and strengthened these communities in ways that were once unimaginable.
