Tadcaster St Joseph's Jubilee Well - Tanzania


In the Ward of Bugarama at Nyakuguma village PRF in 2019 supported 350 families with a hand pump well which is providing sufficient water for these families for their daily uses. The water users are enjoying the water at the moment and they are happy that the well has saved them from being attacked by water related diseases which had been their common problem in the village. Many people had been suffering from Amoebiasis infections (the diseases which is common in tropical area) caused by untreated water. This spreads through drinking or eating uncooked food such as fruits that have been washed in contaminated water. The villagers,  provided they have a well which is covered and whose water comes from inside the well,  it saves a lot because its water is protected from being contaminated with external dirty things. The indicator is that at the Dispensaries the cases of amoebiasis has decreased by 60%. We thank you PRF, but we thank most St. Joseph parishioners;  who during its Jubilee of 150 years contributed the funds which has enabled this well to be built. We are very much thankful to the parishioners for your lovely heart which has made this a reality. Below are photos showing the well and women fetching water happily! They thank you so much.
