Heartbreaking stories from this community shine a light on the dangers faced when collecting water. During dry seasons, children were forced to walk some three miles in order to gather water from the finger-like swamps of Lake Victoria. Ten children from this community were kidnapped and killed in satanic sacrifices. In addition, girls have been raped and children have drowned while collecting water.
You can imagine the relief and gratitude the people in Kiruddu now have for having a clean water source within the safety of their community.
“This borehole ... is within the school itself and in the middle of the village and not in the valley where bad people can easily harm our children and nobody sees them. You have helped us to solve most of those problems. Thank you very much. I will not get tired of sending you to convey our sincere thanks to our donors for doing this for us – for providing us with clean and safe water. Tell them again that we, the people of Kiruddu, are so thankful and very happy indeed." – Kiruddu Chairman Patrick Kayiza
