New Memorial Well to Honor 9/11 Victims

Wells of Life, a nonprofit organization that is known for providing clean and safe water to the children and families of Uganda, recently announced that it has completed work on the first-ever clean water well to honor the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The well, located in the Katakwi District of Uganda, is now fully operational and is already providing fresh drinking water to needy communities.

The well is called the Anthony Kearns 9/11 Memorial Well, named after the Wells of Life National Ambassador who has performed a great deal of work in helping to bring water to one of Africa’s poorest regions. Kearns says that the new crop growth as a result of the water provided by the well is a wonderful and meaningful way to honor those that lost their lives in the attacks and those soldiers that also lost their lives defending America’s freedom overseas.

According to information from Wells of Life, approximately one in six people throughout the world do not have any access to clean drinking water, and one in five children in Africa die because of water-borne diseases before they even reach five years old. Drilling wells only costs about $6,000, yet saves countless lives. Wells of Life works to get financial support to drill these wells to make clean, safe drinking water more readily available.

It has been more than 13 years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but memorials like these show that there is an enormous level of respect for the victims and for those who sacrificed themselves to be of assistance as responders in the days and weeks after. If you are still suffering from health issues as a result of your work as a WTC first responder, contact the compassionate New York lawyers at Barasch, McGarry, Salzman & Penson.

    • Deadline Extended to Register for Compensation


      There is still time to apply for significant compensation if you have been diagnosed with any of the 68 cancers that doctors at the WTC Health Program (WTCHP) have linked to the WTC toxic dust. The deadline to apply to the Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) is two years from the date that a cancer has been certified by the WTC Health Program — or any other governmental agency. The two-year period to register doesn’t start on the day of a cancer diagnosis. Rather, it starts only when a cancer survivor is made aware their cancer was linked to exposure to the WTC toxins.

      For those who died from their WTC-linked cancers, the two-year period for their family to register starts on the day of the death of the WTC victim.
