Rural Community Development Water Christmas Appeal 2018 Donate Fundraise Access to clean water is a prevailing issue in Uganda and 67% of the rural population lack this basic human need. Women and children walk miles to collect water and return home with heavy jerry cans for their families. It's a chore that consumes hours of their day. Hours that should be spent on education and income-generating activities to lift themselves out of poverty. Worse of all, often the water they laboriously collect is not safe to drink or hygienic for washing. Amigos work to construct boreholes in its target communities with the cooperation of local experts and community members to ensure the most sustainable solution. So far, over 100,000 people have access to clean water because of Amigos' clean water projects, and we want to take it a step further this Christmas.
