Drill Five Wells in 2018

One child dies every hour from sanitation-related diseases in Uganda, and 75% of all diseases are caused by the lack of clean water. 67% of people in the Mubende district don't have access to it. Each well provides clean water for 1,000 people for 25 years – resulting in a 50% reduction in infant mortality rate, increased primary school attendance, decreased miles to walk to get water, and increased time at home for mothers. 100% of funds go only to drilling, maintaining, and repairing wells.
