BOIL ALL YOUR DRINKING WATER #UGANDA - IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.

Besides the Typhoid break out in Uganda, we now have a cholera breakout.  These two illnesses result from contaminated drinking water (well other causes too) but now we know there are feaces in the water and e-coli and salmonella bacteria.  You make a very big mistake not to boil your water.  Below is information about e-coli and salmonella grace a Wikipedia.

The key is to maintain proper hygiene by washing your hands, cooking your food thoroughly and boiling your drinking water.  To date, I do not know of a reputable food and safety organisation in Uganda which samples all food and drinks for possible contamination.  If we had one, you would not have feaces in your drinking water or be shutting down vendors of food because of the illnesses which are striking our population.  Better be pro-active.  Prevention is cheaper than treatment.

This is your life and the life of your loved ones.  Do the right thing.
