Thanks to generous donations, charity organisation Itambira Island Seeds of Hope has delivered more water tanks for communities local to Lake Bunyonyi.

The Buhumba and Kakooko water tanks enable more families to access convenient water storage, which makes daily life a lot easier. It means that  rains can be harvested so that people can reduce the amount of time spent fetching water from the lake, which is heavy work involving long walks on steep and rough paths.

Ready access to water means better sanitation as water is not in such short supply, which means that daily washing and hygiene are much easier. It also means that water for cooking is closer at hand.

Water Tank Community Project

Construction of the water tanks is very much a community project, involving many members of the family and village that are to benefit.

These photos show the work involved in preparation for the water tanks.

5 Water Tanks Finished
