For 30,000 South Sudanese and Congolese refugees living in refugee camps in Uganda, water is the difference between life and death. And it is scarce. People often must walk for hours to find even a trickle. Thanks to Stop Hunger Now and our partner, Global H2O, the solution is underway! We are delighted to announce that as of this week, we have received funding commitments to fund eight wells in Uganda.
We have dispersed funds to Global H2O, a nonprofit whose goal is to provide clean water sources to communities through construction of wells, rain harvesting facilities, and spring boxes, and the good news is that the equipment needed to drill lifesaving wells is currently within driving distance of the camps. That gear will be dispatched in the coming days to begin drilling the needed hand-operated wells.
Working together with you, we raised more than
$40,000 to make this project a lifesaving reality!
