Project Details

At Healing Hands, we believe no one should live without love or water! Now, in the remote region of Karamojo in Uganda, close to 1,000 precious souls will know God’s love because of your gift of clean water. Keep walking, Green Hills! Much like the Samaritan woman in John 4, when these people come to draw clean drinking water, they will also have the opportunity to encounter “the living water.” As always, God does the healing, but He is using your hands (and feet) to do it. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9

The Difference It Made!

Lorengechora church of Christ

This well, drilled on the grounds of the Lorengechora Church of Christ, has transformed the lives of hundreds living in this region. This area is desert, and they experience prolonged periods of drought since they have only one rainy season a year. The government had built some dams for rain water collection. The people shared this water with their domestic animals and also used it for bathing, making it unsafe for drinking. During the dry season these dams dried up and the people were forced to walk miles to find water. The beautiful lady pictured to the left is Dengile Marita. She is both a leader in the community and leads the women in the church. She and her husband, Patrick, have two sons and four daughters who will now better be able to focus on their education and less on collecting water. This is why at Healing Hands we frequently say, “It all begins with water.”
