Wells in Uganda
Christ Church is changing lives in Africa by providing funds for new wells in rural Uganda. Our first well, drilled in 2013, is at the Kakoni Primary School, located near the tea-growing region of western Uganda and serves a community of 800 people. By 2015 we fully funded our second borehole. It will serve 1,400 people, helping them to stay healthy and keeping women safe as they fetch water locally.
We work through a small charity named Call to Care Uganda. They have already drilled 27 wells in Uganda, and have provided thousands of clean water cans as well as thousands of bed nets to help curb the spread of malaria. You can find them on the web at www.calltocareuganda.org.
