Water for all children Project
Water for all children Project Summary
Water Project is a mission to provide clean water service to the 3000,000 refugees and people in dry areas. About 85% of them are women, children, and the elderly in the refugee camps in western and northern Uganda.
Desert winds and rain displace sand from afar filling refugee water wells during the summer. Refugees depend on ponds for drinking water during the rainy season but suffer water shortage due to contamination.
While refugees volunteer to clean up the buried wells, they need tools and resources to maintain them.
Water for all children Project Challenge
The water sources for more 500,0000 households in the West and Northern part of Uganda. In these parts, there are refugee camps. Because they are dry areas people use ponds during rainy season and wells during the other seasons.
Ponds as sources of drinking water are not enclosed and get contaminated because people share them with livestock.
As a result of deforestation, the wind gathers contaminants that fill and bury the wells. After the rainy season, refugees stand in line for days awaiting access to water.
This Project provides resources to volunteers serving 3000,000 Uganda refugees and people in dry areas. The cause will provide volunteers with tools, containers, and food. It will also complement their efforts in removing debris and properly containing clean well water.
We are raising awareness deforestation and the negative impact it has on sources of drinking water in the refugee camp. HumanityFriends encourages refugees to plant trees around their camp
The exercise will also help in providing clean fresh waters by building wells, artisan boreholes, and electric boreholes
Long-Term Impact of Water for all children Project
We expect this project will increase access to clean drinking water for 3000,000 refugees by 2023. As a result of sustaining clean water sources, refugees and people living in affected areas can understand the importance of planting trees. They will also be able to maintain water wells. Lastly, they will learn to work together to solve survival issues with little assistance.
