“[In Kiburara] Children were suffering from stomach diseases and eventually dying. Since the wells, health has improved greatly and there are no cases of young children losing their lives.”
– Moses Nkwatsibwe
In 2008, we traveled to western Uganda to visit and be involved in the work of Kiburara Gospel Centre Church. While in Kiburara we saw the filthy drinking water and learned that waterborne diseases were the leading cause of death. Motivated by what we observed, we returned home and by the end of the year raised enough money to build three wells for the village (pictured above). Today waterborne illnesses are no longer the leading killers in Kiburara.
Now we want to give people in neighboring villages access to the same clean drinking water. We started this site with a goal to build an additional three wells in these villages, and we need your help. Only $23 will give one person water for the rest of their life!
These are the 3 sites where we hope to plant new wells.
Without your contribution, we will not be able to give these
villages clean drinking water.
We are students, teachers, computer programmers, nurses, artists, businessmen and women--pretty much normal people. We are Christians who attend Covenant Life Church in the suburbs of Washington D.C. and have a love for the people in western Uganda.
Pastor Moses Nkwatsibwe started the church in 1996 out of his care for inmates at the local prison. From this one church, several other churches have begun in nearby villages--all with a passion to see people know Jesus Christ and to meet their physical needs.
