Acaye's Story:

Alison's Story "My name is Acaye Johnson. I am 42 years old and live in Dolkema village Ongayo Sub-county in -Gulu at the site of the on going drilling project. We fetch water from a stream called Ayago 0.5 km away. We have used the same stream since the time of my grandfather.

We were displaced by the Lords Resistance Army in our village and when we returned from the refugee camp we continued to use water from the same stream.

Our biggest problems are lack of clean water and bad sanitation practices that result in severe stomach ache, worms, typhoid, and infection. I’m so grateful for the drilling of this borehole that will save many lives of the citizens.

I only end by saying thanks to the donors for such great support. You are the first support this village has ever received and I urge the team to remember the community in their prayers. Amen."

Acomo Betty's Story:

Joyce's Story

"I begin by saying glory to God for remembering our community. I am Acomo Betty Wanton who lives in Dolkema village in Ongayo Sub-county-Gulu. During the displacement we stayed in Katikati village. I am 50 years old and married to a handsome husband.

The village has always drank Ayago stream water. It is 0.5 kilometers from my house, and the water turns milky in the dry season or when there is heavy rainfall. We have had no other option because this is the only source within the village unless we wish to travel more than 4-5 kilometers to the neighboring borehole.

I am very happy for the work of the Water Harvest International team in Gulu, especially in Dolkema, for bringing clean water. I therefore ask God to bless the team and the donors so they are able to continue with same support."
