Later this month, Shana Nunez, Tara Odell, Scarlett James, and Angelica Gonzalez, in partnership with For One Another and Hope Abides, will travel to India to distribute water filters and check on our ongoing projects. We’re so excited to provide this update, written by Shana, on their fundraising efforts over the past few months, and will be posting more […]

Uganda

 

For One Another has run three projects in Northern Uganda, in communities that are still recovering from the region’s 20-year war. Since 2012 we’ve supported the installation of Sawyer Point One filters and the construction of two sand dams.

In 2012, we partnered with Map International to bring and install Sawyer Point One water filters into 22 different villages in Northern Uganda. These filters have helped over 1000 people receive the gift of clean safe drinking water.

In 2013, FOA funded and helped build a sand dam in the Karamoja region of Uganda, where the population of nearly one million people has experienced a dramatic reduction of available water over the years. In Karamoja, what was hardly a stream in 2013 has already become plentiful with retained water. In combination with Sawyer Point One water filters also provided by FOA, the people of this region now have access to clean and safe drinking water.

In 2015, For One Another built a sand dam in the Kokoria community of Uganda and also provided Sawyer Point One water filters to individuals and families in villages throughout the region. The main water source for this community is shared with their cattle, which had led to many health and digestive problems.

Sand dams are a simple, cost effective method to retain rainwater and recharge groundwater. FOA worked in partnership with local engineers and the communities who benefitted from the dam using local, natural resources.

In combination with Sawyer Point One water filters also provided by FOA, the communities in Kokoria have reliable access to clean and safe drinking water. Ongoing reports on the dam indicates that it continues to function well, providing water for 500 families in the community. In the three years since FOA helped build this sand dam, northern Uganda has experienced a worsening drought, which has made the combination of water retention in the sand dam and community access to water filters even more important to the health of community members.
