Rural Uganda: Children at the Well

A few years ago Peace Gospel International was able to raise funds for a new clean water well at our main campus in rural southeastern Uganda. The well freely serves a local population of around 10,000, so it’s almost always active throughout the day. Several children are usually gathered at the well to fetch water for their families or to just get a refreshing drink on a hot day. These are a few shots I got around the well over the course of the day. Since the well was installed, common water-borne diseases have vastly decreased in the area. These children also benefit from our free clinic located on campus.
