Water Access in Rural Uganda: VIDEO

31 12 2010

On October 15 th, I wrote the blog post – Water and People in rural Uganda. In this blog post I investigated some of the challenges facing rural communities in terms of access to water for domestic use.

During my stay in my home village this festive season, I learned yet another lesson about the hardships in water access in rural Uganda. This time I managed to capture a very short video (2:40) for you to watch.

Even though I remain very puzzled (because the situation has been like this for the past 15 years or so), I continue to ask myself whether people in this village should remain hopeful that one day safe water will come closer to them.

And this is where I want to ask our leaders – Members of Parliament (etc): “what have they done to improve on safe and clean water access which seems to be getting worse?”
