Okumu's Story:

Gordon's Story

"My name is Okumu Charles and I am 65 years old. I am a resident of Onguti Village, Awach sub-county, Gulu district, Northern Uganda. I am married and God has blessed me with seven children. The name Onguti means reconciliation. This is because during my ancestors’ time the cleans were fighting each other in the village. When the elders sat down to resolve the issues they decided the fighting should end, and from that came the name Onguti.

My village lacks water and the community fetches water from a borehole that is one and a half kilometers away. My family and the entire community of Onguti  fetches water from the stream. Many children and elders in my village have been suffering  from  waterborne diseases. I thank the donor for having donated a clean borehole that will keep us from suffering from waterborne diseases and walking long distances to fetch clean water. My community and I are so happy for the donor. God bless the donor for this great offer of kindness, which nobody has ever given to our community. I also thank Water Harvest International."

Abalo's Story:

Betty's Story

"My name is Abalo Jackline and I am 22 years old. I am married and God has blessed me with two children. In Onguti village, the women face the problem of getting clean water. The people of Onguti A and Onguti B fetch water from the same borehole. The population is high, and therefore it takes more hours at the borehole to fill a twenty-liter  jerry can. The borehole is also far from where we live and most of the community fetches water from a stream. This water is dirty and causes stomach infections.

I thank the donor for helping my community by giving us clean water. We will not forget the kind of love he or she has shown to the people of Onguti. May God bless the hands that give and the people from Water Harvest International who also showed their love in drilling this borehole."
