The Mandate provides clean water to those in need in the area of Uganda where we work. The wells we have drilled so far have provided clean water for drinking, cooking, and washing clothes for the people in our village within an easy walking distance of their homes.
Uganda, a country which has very limited access to clean drinking water. Much of the rural population spends 5 to 6 hours a day traveling to and waiting in line for clean water. Many travel for miles in search of safe water each day. Men, women and children carry their water long distances in large 5 and 10 gallon plastic containers called Jerry cans.
The Mandate provides water wells in the area of Uganda where we work so the people will have clean drinking water and not have to travel great distances to get water.
The wells are placed strategically throughout this vast area where the greatest impact can be had. We hire local Ugandans to drill the wells which provides jobs as well as safe clean water. Each well cost around $5000 to drill. Your donation of $25, $50, $100 or more goes a long way to providing clean water for people who greatly need it and appreciate that you care enough to make their lives better.
Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land. (Proverbs 25:25)
These wells also open doors to being able to share the gospel with the people in the area. Our goal is to dig 12 wells in the our village and then move to a neighboring villages to drill wells for them. We have drilled 12 wells thus far in in our village and 3 in neighboring villages where there were no wells. Our 15th well was just recently drilled in a village about an hour away from our village.
All donations go directly to supporting the mission of The Mandate Inc. ministries and are fully tax-deductible.
