Mission of the Month for January – WATSAN


Water is life. Sanitation is dignity.  WATSAN logo

Why I support Watsan.

Watsan’s source is dependable. The project started with Water Aid whose involvement moved on. Watsan picked up where Water Aid left off.

Watsan’s staff are all Ugandans, supervised by a Ugandan who trained in the U.K. It works under the umbrella of two Bishops, those of the diocese of Kiniiki and North Kigezi.

The U.K. Support Group provide back up if requested and financial support for things like concrete, etc. Mark Wickstead, a Watsan supporter, did a survey on sustainability, checking that all of the projects (2,500 springs, 12 gravity flow systems and 12 sanitation systems) are working as efficiently as possible.

Since clean water has been available other Non Governmental Organisations (for healthcare) have been able to set up, so healthcare messages can increasingly reach local people.

Watsan is run from Oxfordshire so we can bask in its reflected glory! It is our local overseas charity!
