“During this pandemic era of corona virus, everyone needs to practice good hygiene and washing of hands. This reduces the risk of spreading and as well getting coronavirus. Water is very essential in maintaining good hygiene, for hand washing to kill germs that causes diseases, washing clothes and bathing to maintain personal hygiene. Safe water is also good for drinking so has to have our bodies hydrated and stay healthy. I am happy that our community has been provided with a clean safe water especially in such a period when we all need to fight corona virus.”

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.
