It's really dry!

For our family that means pumping water at the borehole on the compound every day. We have a rain water collector attached to our house, but with there being months between rainfall we really do need to supplement. The green jerry can that Mazzy is carrying is the amount of water needed to flush your toilet one time, crazy!! 

We're so thankful that we have a rain water collector at our house and a borehole steps away, not everyone in Kibaale is as lucky.

While walking to Kibaale town we noticed the community borehole was broken, there was a pool of water but you could not pump it out, which meant everyone nearby was getting water from the dirty river. It ended up being a somewhat easy and affordable fix, so it's up and running again which is a blessing during this dry season.
