Last month Hope Alive! set up a borehole that will provide water for the local community in Goro village, Koch-goma in northern Uganda. This took place during a short term mission to the area, with a team from Bethany Community Church.

This development is crucial to the lives of the residents of this area. Previously there was no decent source of water which left the community exposed to the dangers of consuming unhygienic water. They only had a small dirty well to survive on.

Hope Alive!’s country director, James Musoke says that this initiative will transform the lives of the people. “It will be twofold; In the area of clean water and also decreasing diseases.” Musoke also notes that it will help protect women from being sexually assaulted by men as they travel long distances to fetch water. There are few clean water sources in the area and women have to travel long distances to fetch this water.

Hope Alive! plans to set up model Christian schools in this area as well as a community center to reach out to the community. It is in this spirit that the borehole was built.
