The first Well!
I was so happy when I received these photos from Frances, who works for the Charity: she sent me them upon her retun to UK from Uganda.
The well I understand is 56 feet deep, and was dug last July (2007) and the pump was installed in October, 4 months later.
Apparently the diggers go down in a bucket on a rope (Imagine!!! burrowing a hole of 4 1/2 feet in diameter to as far down as 56 feet - hand digging!) for half an hour at a time.
Please, if you wish to contribute to funding a second well, contact the artist. 50% of all sales of greeting cards, gifts, calendars etc., will go towards this
PLEASE GO TO "BIOGRAPHY" AND CLICK ON (TO THE RIGHT) "ABOUT THE ARTIST"
There you will find much more detailed information about the project.
Thanks so much for taking the time - and Please, help!
