Ik Tribe in Uganda

story Wednesday, April 3, 2019

We have been working in different areas throughout Uganda for many years. One example is how the Solvatten units helping a tribe in North Eastern Uganda called the Ik tribe who live in the Morungule mountains bordering Kenya and S. Sudan. They struggle to survive the various seasons of drought and famine throughout the year and diarrhea regularly takes the lives of the Ik people. The Solvatten units have been something of a reward for the families who are demonstrating a desire to see the betterment of their communities. I

We feel this will provide a sense of personal ownership of the units that will ensure their care and usefulness in the long-term. We are also working on establishing a school so some of the units will be going to provide clean water for the children. I am extremely grateful for the generosity of Atlas Copco in donating these units and look forward to seeing the long-term results”
