Welcome to SWIM

In most of the developing world there is a critical need for safe water; however drilling additional wells is not always the best option. The additional wells still supply contaminated water, and political, monetary and location problems are sometimes insurmountable. Likewise, filtration is sometimes needed, but many methods are ineffective, slow, or difficult to maintain.

Let us be clear, there is no one magical fix to the huge need for safe water. In many cases, disinfecting the water available using a natural chlorine solution is the most logical, practical and effective means of quickly having a long-lasting impact in small communities.

Mission

The mission of Safe Water International Ministries (SWIM) is to love human kind by encouraging participation as ambassadors of Jesus Christ, providing for their physical needs, focused on safe drinking water and sharing the Living Water of Jesus Christ worldwide.

Vision

Sharing Christ’s love through water and His word.

From our team member Juma in Uganda.

hello greetings brothers, I am happy to tell you we have traveled to Northern Uganda, we visited a pastor called pastor Mike Obongo, he leads a church called Christ Deliverance church and also a director of Divorce care Uganda in Lira district, he is leading a church in a community which was formally a refugee camp, where the rebel leader called Joseph Kony, used to boil human flesh and force the community people to eat, he also used to cut off woman breasts and would also pierce people's mouths with padlocks, the members in this community are really traumatized and they are still not very friendly with everyone, they had lived for over 10 years in the camp, they do not have pit latrines, No boreholes in the community, there is still camps currently in northern Uganda, the district bordering southern Sudan, because of the political instability there but we did not reach the camps, we are planning to reach there next time.

the biggest problem in this community is water source, they are requesting for a borehole and sincerely if you see the area, there is a great need for water source. because of wars the government nor other organizations or ministry could not drill water source in the area, most families are just settling down and trying to adjust from the camp life. it was a blessing to visit this area and to establish a contact with pastor Mike. we shared with him to be our contact person in Northern Uganda, so that he can be identifying the communities that are doing bad so that we can reach them and serve them with safer water.

pastor Mike has led the church for now three years, he told us he is struggling with the local people, they still behave in un cultured ways, like disposing their wastes anywhere, it's really a bad experience to see how brothers are living in such conditions, we almost failed to eat their food because of the state of life they live but where advised that if we could not eat their food, then they cannot listen to us.

great appreciations to the SWIM team, may the lord bless you
Juma Fredrick
