In March of this year, we provided a new borehole at St. Matia Mulumba Secondary School in the Kayunga District of eastern Uganda. Formerly, 518 students at this school had to walk a mile to fetch water from an open well that was full of dirt and insects, and located deep in the bush. Parents were ready to send their children to other schools to avoid the sickness that came from the contaminated water. Now, the students have clean water to drink right on campus. You can see from the pictures that the students are very happy to have this borehole! We are so fortunate that the McFadden family from Omaha NE donated $9,000 for this borehole. This is the fourth borehole that the McFadden family has donated, and we have shared with them the impact of their generosity on the lives of thousands of students in Uganda. The McFaddens have told us that they choose to donate to Quench and Connectbecause the borehole projects align with the family’s interests in health and education, and they can quickly see the effects of their charitable actions. Many thanks to the McFadden family of Omaha for this borehole!
