Sakabusolo 4 Village, Mpigi District, Uganda

“The human body can only last a few days without water because water is essential for proper health and facilitates a range of life-sustaining functions like digestion, metabolic stability, and cell organ health. While most of us know we ought to drink more water than we do, few understand what it means to go without water or to rely on filthy or contaminated water sources. Our community was relying on contaminated water source for water thus life threatening diseases such as diarrhoea and many more other water related illnesses. To combat these water borne diseases like diarrhoea and cholera. Drop4drop constructed a clean water source in our community. Our community now has clean safe water.”

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.
