Water Shortage Problem

The people of Kwisero region in Butere are happy aftere their plight and quest was finally quenched. They had problems with getting water. It was not long before an organisation named WSF identified the problem within the area and thus intervened and helped solve th eproblem. The NGO WSF decided to construct tanks for collection of rain water and also decided to sink boreholes. Many of the tanks have been constructed in different parts of the area hence this has helped to curb the water shortage problem. Also sinking of boreholes in different areas of the region has played a big role in dealing with this problem that earlier on had been a head ache to many of the people. Many of the residents are happy and they are owing their gratitude to WSF.
