Evelyn and her husband used to collect their water from Uganda’s Lake Victoria. While the water source wasn’t far away, it did introduce all kinds of health problems. For years, their family was spending 25% of their monthly income on visits to the doctor and medicine to treat stomach problems, diarrhea, and waterborne diseases
“We used to fall sick frequently. We’d visit the health center three times every month. And at that time we were very poor.”
Today, with clean water nearby, the entire family of seven is healthier than ever before. Not only does Evelyn have more time to work and earn income, but the money her family is saving will send all five of their kids to school.
