Conrad - Uganda

"When we arrived there was nothing here, just mud …

"A week and half later we started producing water,’ says Conrad, who’s helping get clean water to a Ugandan refugee camp. "The plan is to reach an output of a million litres per day. We're not usually such a big team … But here there are just so many refugees, and the numbers keep rising and rising every day."

Conrad works for Red Cross, he’s one of 44 local and international workers setting up a water treatment plant on the Nile; the water is then trucked to the nearby camp.
