RESILIENCE IN THE FACE OF RISING WATERS: BUILDING A FLOOD-RESISTANT FUTURE TOGETHER
In 2019, intense rainfall resulted in a rise in water levels of Lake Victoria, leading to flooding that severely impacted a section of Kachanga Island. This flooding had devastating effects on the local community, particularly affecting a community school and a hospital. The essential services that these institutions provided were disrupted, causing significant challenges for the island's residents. In collaboration with the community, we are currently engaged in efforts to restore and rejuvenate these critical services.
