DFCU bank has earmarked sh200m [US$ 102,000] for improving water supply and sanitation in Kampala, Lira and Arua. The bank signed a partnership deal with WaterAid [in July 2006] to implement the three-year Sanitation Improvement Project.
Susan Nsibirwa, the dfcu marketing manager, said at the launch of a modern water kiosk and a public toilet facility in Namuwongo A and B in Makindye sub-county in Kampala [...] that the bank was focusing on water, sanitation and hygiene because they are an essential foundation for other forms of community development and poverty eradication.
[...] Joseph Ssemmanda, the WaterAid program officer, commended dfcu bank for joining forces with the private sector to address the common concerns of safe water and sanitation to communities.
