On March 9th we will return to Kitgum with the objective of completing and handing over an additional three wells just in time to celebrate World Water Day on March 22nd.

 

Through various targeted community events, birthday or special occasion wishes, holiday charity dinners thoughtful individuals and companies have helped us raise enough funds since our last 2-well project in September 2011 to allow us now to put this current three-well-project on the map (our largest single undertaking to date). We thank the ones that have helped make this happen…you!

The London Declaration and Eliminating NTDs

The London Declaration and Eliminating NTDs | Global H20 - A Water Initiative | Scoop.it

Interesting article in the Huffington Post:

 

Global leaders and forward-thinking philanthropists and donors committed to eradicating Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) by signing onto The London Declaration.

 

This is a great acheivement and strong step towards combining forces to eradicate NTDs. NTDs infections are considered one of the main reasons why the "bottom billion" struggle to escape poverty. Successfully eradicating NTDs will transform the world.

 

Sadly, the water and sanitation sector will continue to be left behind in the bold initiatives that will shape our world -- including those that are directly related to water and sanitation -- unless we collectively commit to eradicating water poverty worldwide.
