Kajara County residents get clean water sources

NTUNGAMO- Merve Haslak- Turkey through Nile Humanitarian Development Agency  an NGO, has constructed boreholes worth Ugx 20 million to address the challenge of safe water shortage in some parts of Kajara county Ntungamo district.

The boreholes which were commissioned on Thursday September 10th 2020 by the Kajara county legislator Hon Timuzigu Michael Kamugisha, are expected to serve over 1000 households from seven villages in Kakananga Kibaruko ward Rwamabondo town council and Ihuriro I Nyamunuuka town council.

Hamidu Kigongo Kiryooke who collaborated with Nile Humanitarian Development Agency from Turkey to construct the boreholes said the project was established to provide safe water to the communities and sensitise them on environmental protection with emphasis on hygiene.

Kigongo noted that the people of Kajara especially women and children used to walk long distance to fetch water where some experienced sexual harassment on their ways which forced him to lobby the boreholes though he is not in politics.

He added that he requested for 8 boreholes but two have already secured them, assuring them that the remaining will be secured soon.

Kigongo appealed to the beneficiaries to safeguard the constructed water sources if they have sustainable safe and clean water.

While commissioning boreholes, the Kajara county MP Hon Timuzigu Michael Kamugisha hailed the government for its conducive atmosphere that enabled foreign NGOs to thrive in the country.

Hon Timuzigu thanked the NGO which has also helped communities in various parts of the country through scholarships, medical camps and food aid.
 
He noted that  most of the boreholes which were constructed in Kajara county and district at large, had broken down beyond repair while others had been abandoned and could not be repaired due to lack of funds.

Hon Timuzigu also advised leaders and the general public to always cooperate and keep united regardless of their different ideology and political affiliations if the development of their communities is to flourish.

Some women welcomed the initiative, while asking for more support in order to stamp out water-borne diseases.
