Think Humanity Morning Star Well


Another Think Humanity well is under construction. This well is near the Morning Star Secondary School in Hoima. This is the first well that Think Humanity has constructed outside of a refugee settlement camp.
The importance of this well is due to all the children coming to our clinic with typhoid. The water situation was unfavorable in this location; the results was illnesses and disease.
The well is not too far from the Think Humanity Health Centre. When we were treating our sponsored students for typhoid, the decision was made to have this well constructed to prevent more cases. Thank you to the donors who helped provide this well.

Shown with the beginning steps of the well is Amani Nkoma Jean-Paul, Think Humanity Program Director. JP said that the only challenge in construction has been too much water due to their rainy season.

The well was dug without hitting rock. This well should produce plenty of water for the students and surrounding community. Ideally we would like 4,000 liters per day, would provide enough drinking water for 2,000 people per day.
