By the Yard it is hard!! BUT by the INCH it is a cinch!!!
Please join us in finishing the Dress A Girl Around the World well #2, which is situated in Hiriga, Uganda. This well will give clean water to over 9,500 children. It costs $10,150 to drill a deep borehole, which is a lot of money but dividing it up into inches… it is only $5 per inch. We will need 2030 to give an inch to make this happen!!
The current water source for Hiriga is a seasonal pond 4.5 kilometers from the village. Because it is a seasonal water source, during the dry times it is just a puddle making the situation even worse! The source is also in a swampy area out of the sight of homes so there is danger to the women and children in the form of violence and rape.
And diseases related to dirty water include:
And all kinds of Parasites!!
You can help win the fight in Hiriga!!
When I was in Uganda I saw the JOY first hand that a well brings to a village!

It is hard to realize but according to the United Nations more people die as a result of polluted water than are killed by all forms of violence including war!!
Every Inch is Important!!
