My partner, Fiona, is currently out in Uganda to see the great work that WaterAid is doing to improve the health care of local communities.
Thanks to intervention from WaterAid one school visited has had latrines since 2012 – there are three blocks, each with 5 cubicles and also two disabled latrines. Water for handwashing is available and there were many hygiene messages painted on the walls of the classrooms. The school are planning to grow vegetables and fruit so that a midday meal can be provided and are also planning on building more houses for teachers. They need gumboots and brushes to clean the latrines, more furniture and better disabled facilities and would love to have electricity!
