May Be the Source of the Nile River
But it also the Source of many
Water Borne Diseases
We NEEDED YOUR HELP
The shores of Lake Victoria in Siaya County is in very western Kenya neighboring Uganda. We performed a water quality test on the Lake Victoria waters surrounding Mageta Island and the results were “unsafe for human consumption” - - the highest category in ranking dirty water for pollutants. According to what we witnessed with our own eyes along with internet research, raw sewage is being dumped directly into Lake Victoria thus causing very high levels of pollution and causing many water borne diseases. The goal is to cover four islands (Magenta Island, Sifu Island, Ndenda Island, and Oyamo Island) with UZima clean water filters along with training the people of these islands with proper hygiene practices. The results we expect will be a complete transformation of the islanders’ lives. The death rate is too high for us to sit back and watch.
