"The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I, the Lord will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs."
Isaiah 41: 17-18
(The well above is one of the Mercy Uganda wells....this one is in Kyamagemule)
"Jesus answered, "everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." John 4: 13-14
Through generous donors and partners, Mercy Uganda has had the privilege of providing three wells in three remote areas; Kokorio, Kayapas, and Kyamagemule. More opportunities are being presented as needs are identified and gifts are given. We are so thankful to be instruments in the Lord's work in Uganda. Please pray for us as we continue to minister through this gift of clean water. It is transforming lives, giving hope and health. Most of all, it is truly opening the doors for the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost and hurting people.
Picture on left is the trough from the well in Kokorio. This is providing water for the livestock, essential to the overall livelihood of the Karmojang.
The picture on the right is some of the villagers in Kokorio, enjoying the new, clean water. Notice the green field in the background. They have been planting crops, watered by this new well.
The picture above is the newest well, and this picture was taken during the dedication ceremony. This well is in Kayapas, another remote village of Karamoja.
The well above (pictured on the left) is our very first well, done in September 2010 through the generosity of many in the U.S. This well is in Kyamagemule, a remote area of Uganda near Mityana.
The picture above (pictured on the right), was taken in Kokorio, after their well was drilled. This is some of the villagers checking out vegetables in a garden they have been able to grow because of the availability of water and seeds.
The Link below will allow you to watch a short, 40 second video on YouTube. It shows some of the people of Kokorio pumping water from their new well.
