Water is life and sanitation is health, as the saying goes. Water, a basic human right, is at the heart of a daily crisis faced by millions of the world’s most vulnerable people. This crisis threatens life and destroys livelihood on a devastating scale. Water gives life to ever thing. People need water as they need oxygen. Without both, life would be non-existent. When people are denied access to clean water, it means that their freedoms are being constrained by vulne ability and ill-health. Delivering clean water, removing wastes from water, and improving sanitation, are the three of the most basic foundations for human progress facing the Abayudaya Jewish Community of Uganda.
Excerpted from a letter from Jacob Mwosuko, Chairman, Abayudaya Health Committee, Abayudaya Executive Council

The Abayudaya Jewish community of Uganda is achieving their goal of connecting with Jews around the world to ensure their survival and security. The leadership is focused on building the infrastructure to improve healthcare and develop businesses to provide community revenue. These efforts will benefit all residents of their sub-county, including Jews, Christians, and Muslims, therefore promoting peace and security in the region.
