Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) is one of the biggest problem affecting slums and urban residents in Uganda, We have underscored the need to carry on campaigns of such nature consistently in order to prevent water borne diseases like cholera that often leaves fatalities among children and elderly persons.
Water is the source of life — but when not properly managed, it can breed disease, create conflict and destroy communities. Around the world, one in nine people do not have access to the clean water they need — that’s nearly 800 million people.
Rhac-Uganda works to increase access to safe water in the affected communities, whether it’s bringing relief during droughts or rebuilding wells in remote villages. We are forging new delivery models including, reducing waste, and bringing clean water directly to affected people.
To complement our water access programmes, we also improve sanitation and help people learn proper hygiene to prevent disease; work with families and farmers to implement conservation techniques; and strengthen communities against flooding.
