Drop in the Bucket Africa water charity, Atape Omara Community Well completed wells, Uganda Africa
The Atape-Omara community well is located in Omara village, Bugondo Sub County in the Serere district of Uganda.
Before the borehole was drilled, the community members used to walk more than 3 kilometers in search of a safe water point. Because the old water point was far and unreliable, people would in most cases be forced to get water from unprotected sources that were shared with animals therefore exposing them to water-borne diseases such as diarrhea, intestinal worms and typhoid. Now that the community has a borehole the people now get to enjoy the safe drinking water and the instances of water and sanitation related diseases have been reduced.
