Hand digging a new water well.

New water wells being provided with your help

How can you help us dig new water wells?

Contaminated water means that new water wells are needed. Mission 4 Water depends on donations and sponsorship in order to bring clean water to the Ugandan people. Often as shown in this picture water sources are shared with livestock and can become contaminated. The sponsorship money we raise is used to dig new water wells so that the Ugandan people can have uncontaminated drinking water. With your continued help it is possible for us to keep our team digging and get clean water flowing to the people.

How sponsored events have helped

Here are some examples of events that our supporters have organised. We have recently heard of someone in Ferndown doing a sponsored swim, a Church in Wollaston organising a concert and a school giving us their tuckshop profits. Thank you to everyone involved! Great efforts by you all and we are truly appreciative.

Why not get in touch?

We really would like to hear from you. It’s easy to do – please leave a reply below. Let us know of any other events you have run and if you have ideas for raising funds for new water wells, because we really do believe that “Water is Life”!

New car for mission 4 water which will help us dig more water wells in Uganda

What is helping us dig more water wells in Uganda?

The new Mission Direct vehicle makes a great difference

Executive Director Sunday especially appreciates the new Mission Direct vehicle. “It’s used to transport staff and materials. It ideal for the rough Ugandan roads with their many potholes, dust and slippery mud. It makes our work digging water wells in Uganda quicker, easier and more efficient. And the bold sign writing on the car is really getting us noticed. Thanks to the donors who made it possible”!

Registration means we can continue to drill more water wells in Uganda

The Mission 4 Water application for a further three years non-governmental organization (NGO) registration has been approved. Although the process took some time it went through successfully and we are delighted with having this status. This is a great boost to our efforts to continue our well digging work in Uganda. We would like to thanks those who helped and prayed for us during the application and say ‘Praise God!’ for this continued opportunity to bring water to areas where it is most needed.

Three new wells

Three new wells

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!

Keeping cool

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?
