Find about more about our water project below and please consider how you could get involved to support Lifewater.
In recent years, Lifewater has been distributing water purification systems to homes, schools and health centres in village locations across Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda. Villages are selected where there is little or no access to clean and safe drinking water and where there are regular occurrences of water-borne diseases.
Lifewater is currently working in two large Ugandan Refugee Camps: Kyaka II Refugee Camp – home to tens of thousands of refugees from Rwanda and DR Congo; and Rhino Camp Refugee Settlement – home to more than 100,000 refugees from South Sudan. Working with national and International bodies we have been especially targeting families with special needs, providing them with life-saving water purification systems.
Lifewater partners with International and national NGOs providing emergency water purification systems to areas hit by natural disasters such as earthquakes and severe flooding, helping to combat outbreaks of life-threatening water-borne diseases such as cholera, typhoid and dysentery.
