WHILE people in the developed world fret over having no WiFi for an hour and stress over problems with accessing social media, there are people in the Third World for whom access to basic human necessities such as clean, fresh water is a challenge.

In the East African, landlocked country of Uganda having access to clean running water is something that a man from Kiltealy has done an immense amount of work towards since 2010, through the charity organisation, Wells of Life, which he founded.
