The Cost of Unsafe Drinking Water in Uganda

In Uganda, 22 million people cannot find and secure clean drinking water, according to water.org. The health and economic toll this places on both the people and country creates a ripple effect. The issue touches everything from economic prosperity, health and education, all the way to cultural and societal infrastructures.

Beyond its importance for public health, a community’s access to safe and reliable drinking water is directly linked to its economic growth for the country; and can significantly reduce poverty, according to the WHO. In fact, 77% of the population in Uganda is under the age of 25. This presents a significant opportunity to support the country’s economic prosperity and health for the long term by the simple act of supplying clean drinking water.

The SaWa bag quickly purifies the water in a fraction of the time it takes to gather resources to boil and purify the water. This translates into fewer sick days caused by waterborne diseases as well as more time for education and employment.
