This afternoon we split into two groups. One group headed back to Juba for a women’s outreach. This group went to care for the widows and mothers of the Juba village.
The other group went to a clean water well dedication in Nambale village which is in the Bugiri District of Kenya. This well was funded by the Stone family of Manhattan Beach, CA who gave the well in honor of Lincoln Stone’s 50th birthday. Lincoln’s wife, Amy (a doctor on our trip) surprised him on his birthday with this honorarium.
The village was extremely happy and thankful for the bore hole. It brought tears and cheers to everyone.
With each clean water well dedication comes a hygiene session to further educate the village members how to prevent the transmission of germs and diseases. Sam, the hygiene man, is a funny and effective teacher. “Wash your hands!” he shouts.
In addition to the well dedication and blessing, we distributed pillow-case dresses and mosquito nets to the children.
