PROGRAM: Martha Welles Hoffman “Call to Care Uganda"

Martha Welles Hoffman
William Llewellyn

“Call to Care Uganda” The mission is clean water in Uganda. Working with Rotary Clubs in District 7980 and a Rotary Club in Uganda the group has been able to provide clean water to several villages since 2007

As an example, in 2008 The Rotary Clubs of Madison and Guilford partnered with District 7980 to provide money for a well. This, collaboration with additional; Rotary Clubs in our area is still working to provide clean water.

The Rotary Club in Uganda helps determine the well site, provides a hydrologic survey, helps bore a well, pipes and caps the well.

Testing is done regularly to assure clean water and the wells are maintained by the village.

Very interesting program. An example of DMG and Global Grants in action.
