The extension of water and improvement of latrine facilities’ coverage has helped keep life flowing among thousands of refugees in Kyangwali refugee settlement in Kikuube district of Western Uganda. With an average daily refugee influx of between 30 and 50 at the settlement, there has always been a high pressure exerted on the available water and sanitary facilities in the settlement, which is inhabited by over 125,981 refugees.

Oxfam is providing water, sanitation, hygiene, environment, and energy services to refugees and host communities. One of the beneficiaries of the WASH project by Oxfam is Harriet Ntachunanse from Malembo Block 5 in the Kyangwali Refugee settlement, where access to clean water has been difficult.
