Stories and Community Profile

Mundoli Village is home to 211 people from 31 different households, all who rely on Isaac Jumba Spring for their water. Isaac Jumba Spring is named after the landowner who lives with his family nearby.

“Most of the community members lack latrines and therefore go into the bushes, making the area so smelly. When it rains, the rainwater washes away the feces and contaminates our water sources. Your coming to this community will help us access clean and safe water,” shared Mrs. Jumba.

During our visit, community members described how a child here came down with typhoid and died soon after. On receiving news that there are steps that can be taken to prevent things like this, the community was filled with hope and excitement.

Mundoli Village needs your support to protect Isaac Jumba Spring from contamination. When this project is fully funded, construction will transform Isaac Jumba Spring into a safe source of clean drinking water. Community members will be trained on proper hygiene and sanitation practices, and will receive a head start with five sanitation platforms for new latrines.
