First Health United is pleased to help Well Wishers International promote its campaign about clean water provision to the village of Gayaza in Uganda. Since its inception in 2015, First Health United is committed to offer a helping hand to the countries of the Developing World, especially to Africa.
Gayaza is a small village in Kapeeka, Uganda, approximately 35 miles outside the city of Kamapla. Gayaza is home to 200 residents and will be the recipient of Well Wishers International’s first Well build. Many of the residents of Gayaza are farmers and hunters. Crops planted include pumpkin, maize, potatoes, beans and casava.
Currently the residents of Gayaza collect their water from a man made trench on the property of a farmer, Mr. Asharvin. The trench on Mr. Asharvin’s land was built to provide water for his cows. During the driest months, the water runs very low without consistent rain to refill it. If the water comes close to drying out, Mr. Asharvin is forced to close the trench to his neighbors.
A simple thing like a lack of clean water can devastate families and entire villages. The brown, contaminated water of Gayaza has far reaching effects for its residents; sickness, death, economic instability and babies with skin infections and bellies full of parasites, just to mention a few. Together we can change the future of many by simply forgoing the cost of a cup of coffee for a week and in exchange help provide clean water for life and a brighter future.
Well Wishers International has recently launched a fundraising campaign on gofundme.com platform. The well is for the entire village along with 3 neighboring villages which will be using it as well. Well Wishers International aims to build water wells throughout Uganda, possibly neighboring countries, as well as other efforts to help stabilize the communities in need.
