Our ambassadors drilling well in north Uganda

Two years ago our ambassadors Fredrik Rozén and his son Anton Siljeström saw the need for water in Ethiopia. Together with IAS they started the project “Just one well.” The project has so far provided 500 people with water. Right now Fredrik and Anton are in the small village Abim in north Uganda to drill another well.

- We hope to save many lives through this project. We have right now drilled 55 meters and we believe the water is on 64 meters, says Fredrik.

Just one well have been reaching out to the public in Sweden through providing lectures at schools, businesses and sport clubs etc. Fredrik and Anton have also appeared on national TV sharing their dreams and desire to assist people with clean water in partnership with IAS.
