There was real celebrations in the village of Kyenkanga, near Ibanda, western Uganda at Christmas. Mission 4 Water commissioned 3 wells and a protected spring there, one at the site of a proposed primary school, one at a orphanage and the other two either end of the village. No more will these people get sick from dirty water!
Temperatures of 95 degrees in the shade presented challenges even to our Ugandan drillers as they worked on the 45th well at Keframa College near Lira, but this ingenious design helped to keep the sun off! London fashion week next maybe?

A team of Students from Mid America Christian University in Oklahoma are coming again in 2013 to Rukungiri to drill a well for a local community with Mission4Water. They not only raise funds to bring themselves to Uganda, they also provide all the finance necessary for materials and they also provide the man(woman) power, aided by the local team of expert drillers of course.
The Mission4Water vehicle, a Toyota Amazon, was purchased in UK with kind donations from individuals in UK and Water4 Foundation in US and as is due to arrive in Mombasa in March 2013. Sunday and Sue will then drive it across Kenya and Uganda to Rukungiri.
