Kitaboona 2, Mpigi District
“My son got fever, diarrhoea, vomiting and horrible stomach aches. I took him to the witch doctor but he didn’t fully recover. I had to take him to a health centre where the doctor told me he had a case of parasitic worms which had resulted into severe anemia. After prescribed medications and deworming pills, his health finally improved. But the doctor advised us that he could easily get sick if we continue taking contaminated water and poor hygiene practises. Thanks to drop4drop for this clean water. We shall never suffer again.”
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.
