after the death of their mother , Rasty (their before-mentioned grandmother),
found them in the house in Kasese with no one taking care of them. These

burning her arm and was immediately taken to a government hospital, leaving her
two brothers to fend for each other.
Situation. Rasty has been released from the hospital after getting better

HELP BUILD A WELL FOR THE VILLAGE OF 500 HOMES
THIS IS THE WELL SERVING 500 HOMES RESINDENTS LINING UP FOR WATER
The results of this global worming
challenge facing our nation today has come in the time when all the
governmental constructed water supply system, which was expected to
cover all the residents in Mityana town council is facing water flow
problems due to inadequate maintenance and service demands.
This is a result of poverty among the
consumers in the area: as connection on the main supply was free of
charge, families were expected to pay monthly bills on each gallon of
water consumed. This though was not realized due to lack of adequate
Families women and children are fetching
water now from 4 to ten miles. The gallon of 20 liters which was at
100 Shillings for those would afford it, today it is on 500/ shillings
remember Ugandans live on less than 1/ Us dollar per day and every member
of a family would use one gallon of 20 liters and one USA dollar is
equal to 2,000/ UGX.
WATER CRISIS IN MITYANA TOWN
Mityana residents has been obtaining
water from two primary sources: fetched water from eight springs collected
for free, and from vendors who typically charge 100 shillings per 20-liter
gallon, these vendors they are the ones
fetch from the government supply system which is currently faulty
. In addition, a majority of the households collect some amount of rainwater
which is no more because of the dry season.
Mityana dependence on water
vendors is evident and of concern. During the dry season, over
40% of Mityana residents purchase almost all their water from vendors.
Which is no longer functioning and when function they charge 500 shillings
while thus number falls to 24% during the rainy season, households are
spending between an average of
There remains only two springs which are used by the community including
Due to this influx children
and mothers spend a lot more hours on fetching water instead of doing
other productive work which would benefit the family, recently there
has been fights as vendors avoid lining up, the worsted has happened
on young girls who have been raped on the way back home after delaying
on the line. There’s a possibility that these girls contracted HIV.
This situation on water has
caused us to put aside everything and begin working out appropriate
ways to provide a reliable water source for these advantaged families.
Right now we are partnering up with (BUSO) foundation an NGO specialized
in surface and under ground water technologies, to provide us with possible
options to solve this problem. We call on you our partners
to step in to help this project and help spread the word to others.
