Safe Water and WASH in Uganda: “Water is life and life is wealth.”
Anastazia’s family used to struggle with the effects of unsafe, contaminated water every day. They got sick frequently, and her children missed school.
“We were in a really bad situation,” said Anastazia. “Most of the community members had no idea about sanitation.”
But that was before! Today, Anastazia and her community are implementing crucial WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) knowledge about handwashing, using the bathroom, and washing their dishes.
Anastazia and her family have embraced essential WASH practices, and today they are reaping the benefits of their hard work.
“Lifewater has really changed our lives,” said Anastazia. “We do not get sick anymore, and we can even save money now to send our kids to school and afford a decent life.”
Knowledge about sanitation and hygiene empowers everyone in a community to take charge of their health. When a family uses WASH practices consistently they become certified as a Healthy Home!
“Water is life and life is wealth,” rejoiced Anastazia. “With the upcoming safe water we will be able to stay healthy and better provide for our families.”
Simple WASH habits change individuals, families, and whole communities for the better, preparing them for the miracle of safe water and bringing joy and relief to all.
