Virunga Water Tank Project

Although it rains heavily around Virunga Lodge, there are very few facilities for water catchment and storage and in the dry season there is an acute shortage of water. The village communities around Virunga lodge do not have enough clean water for drinking or for growing crops.

Starting in 2016, Virunga Lodge has been providing plastic water tanks to the local community and with the support of our guests, Virunga Lodge has donated 140 tanks to all households in Sunzu village. As at November 2021, 53 tanks have also been donated to families in Bugeyo village, with a further 122 families to go to ensure each home has a water tank.
