Stories from the River
When I say I trusted UWP, I meant it… I trusted them so much that I was willing to leaving my husband and two small children to travel to Uganda for two weeks as the winner of the FREE spot on UWP Team #26! That trip changed me as I saw and participated in what UWP is doing for thousands of people from hundreds of different communities through my monthly support. I will never forget talking with a beautiful 11 year old girl at Muyenje CU Primary School. She told me that it took her 5 hours to walk to school EACH way because of the time it took her to stop for water to haul home to her family. Her principal told me that she always fell asleep at her desk because she would need to leave her home by 3am to make it to school on time. Can you imagine that?! And to think that the water she woke so early for and used all her energy to carry was from a severely contaminated water source that was shared with farm animals. I wish I could say that this is an uncommon occurrence amongst children in Uganda but it’s not. These tough, resilient people deserve to have their stories rewritten with hope, peace, confidence, and GREAT health. That is exactly what my monthly donation is doing. It’s making a global impact far beyond what I could ever do alone.
