Uganda Red Cross Society Constructs Boreholes in Kyangwali Refugee Settlement (Maratatu D-24) and Nabisojjo Village (Hosting Community)

Two production wells have been constructed in Kyangwali refugee settlement and Nabisojjo village, Kyangwali parish, Kikuube district by the Uganda Red Cross in partnership with International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). The borehole constructed in the host community (Nabisojjo) will serve 98 households with approximately 540 individuals, while the one in the refugee settlement (Kyangwali) will serve 213 households, with a population of approximately 1089 individuals. The boreholes were recently commissioned with representation from local leadership, Hand pump mechanics and water user committee representatives who have been assigned to oversee the sustenance of water operations in the communities. Uganda Red Cross also gave the community hand pump tool kits to support them during any repairs as part of ownership for a sustainable and self-reliant community. While maintaining the water sources, Uganda Red Cross has sensitized the community and water user committee members to ensure that after handing over the water source to them, the community will continuously access clean and safe drinking water for their good health. While handing over the bore holes and repair kits to the community water user committees, Martha Imamut, the Uganda Red Cross Kyangwali refugee response operations manager emphasized the need to have the water sources clean and ownership by the community.
