Over 2,000 households in Bulesa sub-county, Bugiri district, have received two boreholes worth sh18m from the United Kingdom Salvation Army.
Speaking at the commissioning of the new boreholes on Friday at Bukuta Corps centre, the Uganda Salvation Army representative, Bishop William Gyima, said the project was aimed at constructing boreholes in most parts of the country.
“We told our partners, Salvation Army in the United Kingdom, of how people here were suffering from water shortage especially in villages so that they could provide some assistance,’’ he said.
“It is due to this request that they agreed to mobilise funds to help out on this cause.
‘‘So far two districts have benefited from this project but more are still lined up,’’ he said.
The LC5 chairman, Siraje Samanya, commended the Salvation Army for the assistance, saying the district had for long suffered from acute water shortage.
He said the area had few water points shared by many households.
“We are happy our prayers have been answered because we have suffered for nearly 15 years. We thank our friends, the Salvation Army, for coming to our aid. We have benefited most from our friends the Baptist Church and the Salvation Army,’’ Samanya said.
