Luwunga 4 Village, Mpigi District, Uganda

“Community members in Luwunga 4 village used to walk at least an hour every day to fetch clean water from the near by village. Judith Namakula narrates, “Looking back at the state of water in our village, we used to walk for hours each day to collect water and our children used to fall sick due to water related illnesses. With this source of clean water our children will no longer fall sick. This brings alot of hope and relief on us. Clean and safe water means healthy families, more money is saved that we can now spend on education, business investment and thus economic empowerment. The entire community remains grateful to Last Night a DJ save my life Foundation and Drop 4 drop for constructing this water source.”

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.
