Challenge

The civil strife in Northern Uganda of over the last 20 years, coupled with climate change - drought has brought more than 10,000 families, who had just return from the Internally Displaced People's camps to state of severe water crisis. The pumps and wells installed some 30 years ago can no longer handle everyday needs, let alone such serve drought which dries every nearby swamp that used to provide waters, over the years, during rainy seasons. Many existing pumps even do not work.

Solution

Water crisis- link is dedicated to providing safe, healthy water to villages using dirty/muddy water, and areas where women walk for a half a day in search of water. Their staffs help install simple, efficient hand pumps and tube wells. Their experts teach villagers how to maintain them. All water crisis- links projects are undertaken at the request of the community leaders. The community controls the assets and pays for their upkeep, ensuring a supply of safe, healthy water far into the future.

Long-Term Impact

RWYC' s Water crisis- Link would like to reduce the walking distance to three or four kilometers radius so the poor could also have access to clean water within a walkable distance. Installations of boreholes or pumps could reduce this water shortage by over 50% in the hard-hit areas recovering from the war effects. Our project is working day and night to have these problems fixed to a reasonable level possible. In addition, within a few years with your support, over 50 villages will have safe,
