A handover project from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Tororo area will benefit 19 communities by providing latrines, water source protection and other sanitation measures.

The project will enhance water quality and general health for hundreds of citizens in the area.

The handover was attended by many dignitaries and VIP’s including Mr. Osuna Emmanuel L C 5, who was the chief guest. Mr. Osuna praised the Church for it’s commitment in fulfilling promises. He also noted that a project of this magnitude would normally take two years, but was completed in just five months. In his closing remarks, he stated “if your church was in Tosoro, I would be the first to join.”

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a rapidly growing worldwide church with over 14 million members in nearly 170 countries.
