"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
What an amazing gift God has given in this gift of water! God has provided the resources for Mercy Uganda to place wells in the following areas: Kyamagemule, Kokorio, Kayapas, and Buyege. He has also provided resources for an old community well to be repaired and it is serving many!
The well above is on the Mercy Land in Buyege
The above picture is a group of children at the well in Kayapas

This is a picture of the community well repair done near the Mercy Land.....this well had been put in years ago by another organization and the people in the community were told it could not be repaired.....the community actually contributed toward part of the cost, and provided much of the labor!
"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: 13-1
Through generous donors and partners, Mercy Uganda has had the privilege of providing the wells. Thank you to all who have honored God through this gift of water. Our prayer is that those who do not know the Lord will find the Living Water, that is Jesus Christ.
