In June, our partnership with Drink Maple allowed for the distribution of 102 water filters in Uganda, which supplied clean drinking water to more than five thousand people. Volunteers from the Kona area, many of whom were doctors or other medical personnel, set up temporary medical clinics in Uganda to treat people dealing with illnesses. Whenever someone came through with a water borne illness such as typhoid, one of our More Than Sport volunteers would teach them how to use a water filter and then give them one to take home. This is exemplary of the kind of sustainable, long-term solutions More Than Sport is always working towards in communities around the world.
