Lifewater International has a beautiful 40 year history of going into some of the hardest places and bringing water, health, and hope to create a lasting impact in these communities.
"We believe that we will see an end to our world’s water and sanitation crisis in this generation, but it won’t happen with the advent of fancy new technologies that provide pure water or gizmos that track which pumps are used or in need of repair. If only it were that easy. Instead, Lifewater understands that the most effective, sustainable, and scalable investment for change is made in people."
Lifewater works in some of the hardest places in the world.
We had the opportunity to work with them at some of their locations in Northern Uganda; a dry, hot, and as far as the environment goes, harsh place. But the people, the people are some of the warmest most welcoming that there are.
Lifewater took some time to explain why they work in Northern Uganda. Why this is a hard place. And why, ultimately, their work brings Hope to Hard Places:
A Story of Transformation, her name is Caroline.
If you have ever talked to anyone that has been to Uganda, you know that there is something special about this country. While seeing the realities of water and sanitation in the region, we stayed with Caroline, a mother, a widow, a home to the homeless, a woman that has seen and experienced so much struggle that she should have trouble smiling, but thats all she would do. She invited us in. Housed us, fed us, loved us, then told us her story and her story of how clean water, sanitation, and hygiene are making a better future for her and her family.
