Abingdon: Give Rainwater Tanks in Tanzania

Installation of 3 water tanks; for safe drinking water in the vulnerable community of Oldonyo

Fighting fluorosis in Arusha region (Tanzania) Oldonyo-sambu, with a population of 3,256 is probably the region in Tanzania most affected by fluorosis. The fluorine content of drinking water in the Oldonyo Sambu region is about 12 times more than the WHO recommended level. This leads to skeletal fluorosis, a very debilitating bone condition. In December 2018 , in conjunction with the Nasio Trust, three water tanks, guttering and all pipework at strategically placed locations within the community were installed. This enables families in proximity to the tanks to share the supply of safe water.
