THANK YOU from Uganda!
Our projects manager, Kyle Lomax, returned from Uganda just before Christmas. He came back with stories of people who were overjoyed to have received life saving water filters! Thank you Kyle for all your hard work; below are few of his words.
Furaha ya mwaka mpya! Happy New Year everyone! I just returned from Uganda, where I've been getting quite the workout hauling these 70 kg bio-sand water filters! I was greeted by large crowds of smiling people in every village, expressing their gratitude. After instructions on filter use and maintenance, the filters are installed in the selected homes. Clean water has literally transformed these communities with better health and a drastic reduction in waterborne diseases. Although we are closing in on our 1,000 filter project, a new project will be starting soon to continue to fill the high demand for these simple life-saving filters! Your gracious support has made all of this possible. On behalf of my friends in Uganda, THANK YOU!!
