Bukula 2, Mpigi District, Uganda
“Walking up to six hours a day to fetch water was a routine for me and my grandchildren and the water was never clear. Access to clean water was far from reality because our village is a remote one. We were using contaminated water from the ponds. DROP4DROP and Medirest helped support the construction of a clean source of water for us in our community. Today we no longer walk for a long distance to get clean water. I am very grateful for this clear and safe water provided to us. My grandchildren now can’t miss school to fetch water like it was before. Thank you Medirest, thank you drop4drop”.
This project was undertaken as part of our campaign of projects that actively reduce carbon emissions. This project helped the community save their much needed wood which was previously being burnt daily to boil water. This project has also eliminated the many thousands of hours previously spent on walking to collect water.
