The fields of Life Choir will be joined by the singer Nathan Jess when they appear at the Abbey Hotel in Donegal Town on September 3rd.
Fields of Life was founded in 1993 by a farmer from Co. Dublin. Trevor Stevenson and his wife Ruth spent several years living in Luwero, Uganda.
Today the work has expanded beyond Uganda with project work undertaken in Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya and Democratic Republic of Congo. The work now focuses on
To date, 265 wells have been drilled and are providing communities totalling 250,000 people with clean, safe drinking water. Fields of Life purchased its own drilling Rig late in 2009 which reduced costs significantly and has recently acquired a second drilling Rig which has doubled capacity.
Fields of Life is well on its way to fulfilling their vision of drilling 1,000 wells over a ten year period.
Admission is €8 and all funds raised on the night will go towards building a school in Burundi.
