KAMPALA: National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) Kampala Area has taken yet another step aimed at promoting access to water for all as well as improving sanitation and keeping the capital city clean.
NWSC Kampala Area, whose General Manager is Eng Mahmood Lutaaya, began the month of July 2022 by launching a campaign aimed sensitizing Kampala City residents on matters to do with the corporation’s services as a way of bettering water supply and sanitation.
The corporation launched its first ever cleaning campaign in all Kamapala Water Zones in line with Dr Eng Silver Mugisha’s NWSC’s Public Relations Action Plan and Corporate Social Responsibility.
Dubbed ‘Tukwatire Wamu’ (Let’s Work Together), the cleaning campaign was inaugurated on Saturday, July 02, 2022. The initiative is meant to encourage all stakeholders to come together and join hands with National Water and Sewerage Corporation so as to ensure that the corporation’s main goal of ensuring Water and Sanitation for all Ugandans is achieved.
Under the campaign, NWSC Kampala Area officials and local leaders of goodwill will team up to mobilize communities to take part in initiatives aimed at ensuring a clean Kampala City. NWSC officials from the Kampala Area will also sensitize the community about water and sanitation related services as well as sensitize customers on proposed and ongoing projects aimed at serving them better. Clients will also be sensitized on how to handle water supply related issues such as high billing, cases of no water supply, low pressure, among many others.
The main event for the launch of the campaign took place at Kisenyi Health Center IV. During this inauguration, NWSC staff and various political players donated items to the hospital and engaged in other Corporate Social Responsibility causes.
Several water zones were represented in the inaugural event which targeted markets and trading centers within the Greater Kampala Metropolitan. Kampala Water Zones represented at the event were: Western Zone which includes Kalerwe Market, Nansana Market and Kyengera market; Eastern Zone which comprises Kasokoso Acoli Quarters, Kilombe-Ntinda and Luzira Port Bell Market; as well as the Central Zone which includes Kisenyi Health Center, Najja/Kibuye Market, Kinawataka-Mbuya Market and Kamwokya Mulimira Zone.
The campaign’s main event, which will be a bi-annual event, in all areas of operation of NWSC, is expected to further strengthen the partnerships and foster meaningful and transformative collaborations between Kampala Water and the local leaders in the various divisions and municipalities.
