Water-borne diseases are not only painful and devastating to individuals, communities and families, they have a significant impact on the local, domestic and international economy. The cost of medical treatment and medication, and, the loss of manpower due to illness are just some of the associated sources of financial loss. In addition to the economic losses, time and manpower are also lost in the hours women and children spend each day gathering water from distant, often unreliable water sources. The daily task of fetching water keeps school-aged girls out of the classroom and hinders their social and economic development. Clean accessible drinking water is a basic human right essential to life. Article 25, Paragraph 1, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: "Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control." Every human being has the right to clean, safe drinking water. It is fundamental to our health and survival, yet one sixth of the world does not have access to this vital life source. That’s why we, at Wells of Life, are seriously committed to this ongoing dilemma…one well, one village at a time. And, for $6000 we can provide clean, fresh drinking water to over 1000 villagers in a rural community in Uganda. Please come join us in supporting these life-saving efforts.
