Supporting the work of international water charity Just a Drop, Hafren Water’s Lawrence Brown travelled to Uganda at the end of February to donate his technical expertise on a number of new and existing projects.
Passionate about the impact that clean water and sanitation can make to people’s lives Just a Drop support marginalised people across the world through sustainable community-led development. Working with local partners, Lawrence advised the project team on the feasibility and maintenance of projects that the charity has or is currently implementing in the area. Assessing the site and the project plan for a new borehole to supply the Wakiso Health Centre, which serves a population of over 50,000, Lawrence also reviewed an existing Health Centre project in Namayumba, which was completed last year.
Before embarking on his trip, Lawrence commented: “Utilising my professional skills and experience, I am looking forward to contributing to the vital work that the charity does. It is a good opportunity for both myself and Hafren Water to be involved in charitable work that has such a far-reaching and positive impact.”
Working with communities and local partners to implement water, sanitation and hygiene ('WASH') solutions that best suit a community's specific needs, Just a Drop has completed projects in over 30 countries, reaching over 1.3 million people since the charity began in 1998.
