Almost 64 families now have water purification equipment which can be used for three years on daily basis and does not need power to function.

The City Presbytery Chairperson of Partnership King Norman Rudi said they received the equipment from a partner Church in Scotland to curb water problems faced by disaster victims.

“We heard the complaints from people camping here at Chimwankhunda that they are using unclean water so as a Church, we got this donation of life straws from our partner church in Scotland and we thought we should donate to these people to ease their current water problem,” said Rudi.

Stevie Ligomeka, School Management Committee Chairperson and the Camps Coordinator described the donation as timely.

Said Ligomeka: “We have welcomed the donation with open arms because we have been using unprotected water which is hazardous to our health. So the coming in of this equipment means a lot to us.”

The camp, which has 210 people including women and children, does not have a kitchen and the victims have to go to Chimwankhunda Primary School for meals.

Currently plans of constructing a kitchen at the camp site are underway and other sanitation facilities.
