Connections: Ugandan Water Project

Nov 30, 2016

The Ugandan Water Project started in 2008, and now it's a mission to provide clean water to a population that desperately needs it. The way it happens is remarkable: 10,000 liter polyvinyl tanks collect rainwater.

Local musicians are hoping to help raise thousands of dollars for new collection tanks. We discuss how the project began, and why the need is so acute. Our guests:

  • Mike Muscarella, guitarist for Violet Mary
  • Joe Myers, drummer for Violet Mary
  • Mel Muscarella, lead singer and keyboards for Violet Mary
  • James Harrington, Ugandan Water Project
