DRILLING 30 NEW BOREHOLES IN RURAL KOTIDO, UGANDA

The northeast of Uganda periodically suffers from drought and all that results from that.  We have raised money for food programmes for several years as famine gripped the region.  In order to help lessen the severity of dry periods, SPICMA has teamed up with the Swiss government and a Swiss charity called Act-U.  Together, we intend to fund the drilling of 30 new boreholes where rural communities can access them.    
This will be the third time we’ve worked together in the past five years.  Act-U is experienced in commissioning surveys and organising the drilling, as well as training the local people how to look after the pumps.  For our part, we must raise £50,000 to give these rural communities access to a safe and stable water supply.  It is a big commitment for a small charity, but the benefits are beyond measure.  Thank you for any help you can give.
