Serubona 3, Mpigi District Uganda
“I grew up in this community with a pathetic water source situation. We had a very dirty pond that everyone in the community used to share. Animals also used to use that very source of water. There were many risks involved in the process of getting the water, there was a risk of our little kids falling in to the pond and girls being exposed to chances of being raped in the process of trekking in search of clean and safe water.
There were several diseases associated with the dirty water like typhoid, cholera and skin diseases because the water was extremely dirty. Once it rains, dirty running water with all sorts of remains, animal or human would just run into the pond. Thanks to Drop for Drop and Life water, everything changed, we have clean water that is easily accessible. Our lives just got better.”
