A Rocha Uganda: A healthy wetland and healthy lives

4:51 minutes – Melissa Ong

Meet Sara Kaweesa, our National Director in Uganda. Sara lives at the A Rocha field base in the slums around Lubigi Wetland on the outskirts of Kampala. A Rocha Uganda is studying and protecting the wetland, important for many waterbirds and birds of prey, through their work with the local communities. Providing clean drinking water and finding new ways to dispose of sewage and rubbish is transforming lives, bringing health, dignity and hope to the people, whilst also reducing the pollution of the swamp.
