Water is the most vital human need, but more than a billion people around the world are struggling to reach it. Nearly 5,000 children die every day due to water pollution. More than 2 billion of the world's population lack sanitation facilities and clean drinking water. Travelling on foot for at least 5kms away from home, twice a day, to get water is a daily task for the Ugandan (African) children from the time they learn how to walk. Childhood in Uganda means spending more than 8hrs a day going back and forth to the pond through roads full of snakes and dangerous animals carrying gallons of water for the basic needs of the family. Unfortunately the water brought by the child from the pond is often filled with disease and insects. Drilling boreholes is their rescue and solution and that's why this is Firdous' major priority. As FCO, we announce our partners' donations by laying a foundation stone at each well which they funded, as a way of thanking them and also that the community keep their gratitude. 279 BORE HOLES HAVE BEEN SO FAR BUILT OVER OUR TIMES OF OPERATION.
