Kasaka Water Project Update -
Water was discovered in the village of Kasaka, Uganda in early December 2018.
Two water engineers and local workers constructed a bore hole (well) and solar pump, with 4,000 litres of water being pumped per hour. Much excitement followed! A second large donation from Compassion International was sufficient to begin stage two of the project. At the beginning of this year, fifteen men dug ditches for plastic water lines. Some existing piping needed to be replaced under established roadways. With the solar pump in place and piping to direct the water supply, the first destination was the bishop’s house. Two other centres now have clean, accessible water. Presently, with more piping and fitting supplies from Kampala, running water will be offered to the local health clinic and to the village.
St. Luke’s donations for this solar-powered pump in our sister diocese of Central Buganda were $2,122.65. This gift and donations from three other parishes in our diocese will complete this project. On 4 January, Alvin Jacobs replied to an email citing St. Luke’s gift: “Jo, that is great, great news. I believe that will mean we can complete the project. Bless you all at St. Luke’s... God is so good.”
Clean, potable, immediately accessible water is an Advent gift mutually blessing the giver and the recipients.
Glory to God whose power in us can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.
