A Commitment To Clean Water

WaterAid’s comprehensive effort to prevent the spread of disease from the floods in Pakistan included the use of temporary tankers to deliver fresh water directly to survivors. In addition, purification tablets, rehydration salts, and basic hygiene kits containing soap, toothbrushes, combs, towels, and water vessels were distributed widely

Tanzania: Clean Water Update

Since the beginning of WaterAid’s project in Kibaigwa, the Board of Trustees has been able to expand the clean water network by increasing the number of communal water points from 24 to 46, increasing private connections from 3 to 339, and drilling one additional borehole fitted with a new pump. As a result, water supply is more efficient and is now available 24 hours a day. Revenue collection is also more effective because clean water connections are metered. In addition, new regulations prohibit people from washing items directly under the tap because this wastes water and is a bad practice for environmental hygiene.
