Hydroflux’s Ongoing Partnership with Love Mercy to Provide Clean Drinking Water in Uganda

May 28, 2024

Hydroflux recently had the pleasure of hosting Love Mercy, led by their Founding Director Eloise Wellings, a dual Olympian and elite marathon runner, to discuss the profound impact of Hydroflux’s contributions to the ‘Well Worth It’ program—an initiative dedicated to providing safe, clean drinking water to communities in Northern Uganda through borehole drilling and repair.

Hydroflux’s collaboration with Love Mercy has resulted in the construction of 30 wells across 10 sub-counties, benefiting over 6,750 households with access to clean water.

Drilled in January 2023, Akuta Village well provides clean water to 230 households, or approximately 1,380 people. Previously women and their children in the village would walk 2km each way to their nearest water source, which was a swamp. The village reported large amounts of waterborne disease including GBV. This meant that simply by accessing their only available water source, women were unable to complete everyday home activities, work to earn income, and their children spent time out of school. Upon drilling and installation of the Akuta Village well, the community reported a strong willingness to learn how to care for and maintain the well so that their clean water source and the positive impacts on their wellbeing as a community is sustainable.

Hydroflux established a partnership with Love Mercy in 2021 to address the urgent need for safe, clean water in rural Northern Uganda. Today, our commitment to making a positive change on these communities remains strong, and we take pride in witnessing the significant impact these wells are having on the local communities.
