" Safe Water Drinking Ceremony"

Its time to drink what we have been searching and hunting for. Let us celebrate. Water is Life. After the arrive of Dr. Bruce on the "First Water Drinking Ceremony", Fr. Fortunate leads the procession of visitors and community members to the site of the new Water well for a blessing that was followed by drinking. Dear Reader, follow the procession and descend the hill to the water well through the photo gallery

Children suffer the most with contaminated
 and risky waters or during water scarcity
 situations like this one in Rubanda.

Dr. Bruce enjoys a happy moment with school kids as they wait for their turn to drink while those who have finished drinking enjoy a Kikiga  traditional blessing dance.

A moment of gifts from the community!

Work Continues! 

Work continues to make sure that water arrives at the school by electric pump and end the suffering of walking miles in search of water and carried by head. That realizes a lot of pressure from children. 

Dr. Bruce and his group of friends:  Zaal from New Zealand, Lucy-Australia, Rachel-Australia, Sarah -UK, Klara- Scotland, Gabriella -UK  pause for a group photo after the water drinking ceremony in Runbanda-Southwestern Uganda. And they couldn't leave the community without a word written on the wall. Here it is below.
A word from our visitors on site!


Its accomplished
Peace !
