Kyamasiga Village, Hoima District, Uganda
‘Gather & Gather together with Life water has helped this community with a clean safe source of water. Compared to some years back, where we would go search for water from far places and yet that water was unsafe to drink. Now my family and other communities members have clean and safe water from nearby constructed water source.
Lack of clean water had led to spread of illnesses such as diarrhea and cholera, making children, especially, vulnerable to waterborne diseases. With this new source of water , the community members will not suffer from these illnesses anymore.’
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.
