Progress towards water security
Staff recently completed the installation of a 3,000 litre Canadian manufactured water tank. The tank was included in the container that was shipped to the orphanage in June last year. Improving drinking water collection became an urgent need when the water system in the City of Uvira started failing. It meant intermittent water supply, sometimes having access to running water as little as 2 to 3 days per week. Now water is collected in the tank when the supply is available and the tank holds up to 30 days worth of fresh water supply.
