900 children at Abeko Primary School in Soroti, Uganda now have access to clean drinking water thanks to the generous donations from the people of Port City Faith Assembly of God Church in Oswego, NY.
The members of the congregation generously donated towards the rainwater collection tank project for nearly a year.
Pastor Sebastian Foti said it was an amazing feeling to leave a footprint on the world. He quoted a biblical scripture verse, Matthew 25:40, “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
Missions is one of the five core themes of Port City Faith’s mission statement, the reason they exist. The others are discipleship, prayer, worship and community.
The Uganda Water Project facilitated the building of the rainwater collection tank, a non-profit humanitarian organzation that works with sponsors in the U.S. to provide safe, accessible drinking water to communities in Uganda. The organization also employs local people of Uganda to build the tanks as a way to create jobs for them to pull themselves out of poverty.
