A pond two miles from home in Nakatogo Moja village is what Jacintatin calls “the source of many of our problems.” Still, the mother of seven spends three hours each day filling up her jerry cans at the pond.

Jacintatin is a recent widow, and has since moved in with her brother, Tenesa, to help raise her seven children.

There is never a time when someone in the home is not sick from waterborne illnesses, and medical treatment is a huge burden.

“We treat typhoid, dysentery, cholera… it never ends,” Tenesa said. “We have to choose between keeping the children alive and taking them to school.”

In Uganda, families pay school fees for a child’s education. Jacintatin’s children spend 2-3 days at school, and spend the other days retrieving water so she can work in the garden.

“I want them to have a better life than I have had, and educating them is my only hope,” she said.

When the family doesn’t have enough water, they wear dirty clothes to bed or go to sleep without dinner.

“Imagine being in a situation where you have to choose between bathing after a long day of work and sweating in the garden or cooking dinner,” Tenesa said.

You can help all of Nakatogo Moja village today. Your gift will provide health training for each household, plus a new, safe water source near their village.

Lasting change means more than just building a well. Local Lifewater staff will work house by house to teach healthy habits and share the love of Christ with everyone.
