According to Water.org, 25% of the Ugandans do not have access to clean water, and 80% of the people do not have adequate sanitation. The major source of freshwater for the people of the Kayunga District, home to the OneMama.org health center and birthing clinic, is the Nile River as well as fresh water sources from rain. It is estimated that only 25% of the people living in Kayunga have access to clean water. As Siobhan Neilland, Founder of OneMama, explains, “There are a few private borehole wells on people’s private property but there are not community wells for broader community access to fresh water. There is a real need for more boreholes, rainwater catchment systems and a water filtration system to provide the community with access to clean water.”
For the province of Kayunga, creating a reliable water management system that provides the local population with access to clean reliable water and sanitation is a major priority. OneMama is committed to making sure that the local population has access to clean water and proper sanitation a priority. The best way to stop the spread of diseases is prevention, and it starts with clean water.
