Access to clean water and a means of storing it make a huge contribution to the health of a village.
One of our own orphans, George, is now a qualified civil engineer. That he has been working to provide clean water to several villages shows what can be achieved when young people are given a chance. He had no hope until W.O.R.K found him. Now, thanks to the generosity of sponsors, he is giving back to his community .
One of W.O.R.K.’s project, a Protected Spring at Namboboto village now provides clean water for about 100 families.
At Namboboto Health Centre there was no water supply. Thanks to a wonderful fundraising effort there is now water throughout the health centre. This has made a huge difference to the medical staff and patients as water no longer has to be carried from a distance. You can read about this ambitious project here.
Numerous water tanks for schools and health centres have been provided. These are not cheap so poor communities simply cannot afford to store clean water unless they are helped.
A number of other Spring Protection projects in isolated and rural areas are being supported to ensure that people have access to clean water and the health benefits that accompany this.
