Operation Hunger’s Water Projects
Better Access To Clean Water
Access to clean drinkable water is the foremost basic need for all life. Improving access to water is an ongoing initiative of Operation Hunger. We provide 90-Litre Hippo Water Rollers that can be rolled to and from water sources such as boreholes and community taps. The design of these tanks allows for one person to move up to 90 litres of clean water from the source to the household without contamination or spillage. This is a ground-breaking innovation and solution for people in rural and undeveloped areas where water bearers, comprising mostly of women and children, would walk long distances carrying heavy loads that strained already insufficiently nourished bodies.
An example of the villages assisted with these Rollers is Steelpoort in the Limpopo province where CitiGroup made it possible for the residents to benefit from the water rollers. Over 100 families now have improved access to water.
