Stories STORIES


Ajak's Story:


Alison's Story
"My name is Ajak Evaline, I am 30 years old, I live in Okun village, Awach Sub-county in Gulu at the site of the on going drilling process. We fetch water from a stream called Togo.

After I returned back from the refugee camp after the war, we used to take water from the same stream, which is seasonal. When the stream dries off, we fetch water from Akuiji shallow well, which is as far as 1.5 km away. One of our major problems is water, healthcare and facilities. Our community is experiencing the problem of fetching from unprotected sources of water until WHI arrived in Okun, which gives us hope of clean water.

Now the drilled borehole will change our lives and reduce the risks of stomach infection.

Thanks for the donor and the WHI team for their support. I therefore ask God to bless the team and the donors to continue with same support."

Okot's Story:

 
Joyce's Story

"I am Okot Santo Opogo, I was born in Okun village, Awach Sub-county – Gulu in 1963. We get water from a stream called Togo in our village, which is 0.5 kilometers away.

When we returned from refugee camp, there was no change made by the government. We take water from the same seasonal stream.

Our community is always experiencing the problem of fetching water from unprotected sources and has no proper health services. But now WHI has done more good than the government in our village. This borehole will change our lives and reduce the risks of water borne infection.

Thanks for the donors and the WHI team for their support."
