The villagers of Buluzi collect their water from a make shift hole in the ground next to crops fed by chemical fertilizer. The water is also shared with the local goats. Through drinking this water, many of the villagers constantly suffer from diarrhea. In the rainy season, facilities like these are prone to causing outbreaks of cholera. Many of the surrounding villages share similar fates due to broken wells or lack of facilities. Our initial survey indicated that five new wells are required and eight existing wells need to be repaired. There is also a lack of hygienic sanitation facilities in the area. This project is to train the communities how to construct the Water Works Abakus pump and to assist in the construction of hygienic latrines. Click DONATE
