Kaalo 3, Mpigi District, Uganda
“My name is Kato Joseph, a community health worker and a resident of Kaalo village. Water scarcity was a very big problem in our community and also a very big challenge at our nearby health centre. We used to record many cases of typhoid illnesses amongst the community members and this was due to drinking contaminated water. With this new water source, we believe that the situation is going to completely change because there is availability of clean and safe water. Thanks to drop4drop and LNADJ, with support from Peaky Blinders and Basement Club. This clean water will make a big difference to our community.”
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.
