Our team has kept a positive outlook on our work during this pandemic, but by the time June finished, the Ugandan Water Project was starting to see a real decline in funding for new water projects - without an unexpected turnaround, we were going to be down about $60,000 by the end of the summer. It was with that rising need on my mind that we opened an unexpected envelope a couple weeks ago to find a check for $15,000. That’s always a miracle moment . . . but it didn’t stop there. At our Board of Directors meeting last week, two of our board members stepped up and added another $15,000 - together that $30K is the leading half of what we are launching as a $60,000 Matching Challenge!!


For the month of August we are asking YOU and the UWP Tribe to help us raise the the remaining $30,000. Your matching gift is not just doubled financially, it’s also a double impact. We are targeting these funds to provide critical water resources for health clinics. UWP has been assessing the water needs at almost 100 health clinics serving a population of 2 million Ugandans. Your donation provides critical infrastructure for the ongoing needs of these clinics but it is doubly important at this time as COVID-19’s impact in East Africa is growing. We are seeing clinics that deliver babies in their maternity ward but are using water gathered at a local swamp. We can change this!
