A report on the water crisis in Buea and how Wholesome Health Production (WHP) is responding to the crisis, particularly at the Buea Regional Hospital, which has been hard-hit by the shortage of safe and accessible water in the town.
The Buea regional hospital, which serves a catchment area of close to a million inhabitants, has been dealing with severe water shortages that have impacted the quality of services across the hospital. The ongoing socio-political crisis in the region has increased pressure on the hospital due to the mass migration of displaced citizens into the hospital’s catchment area. The regional hospital needs about 60,000 liters of water daily to be fully operational. However, the hospital’s water system can only provide about 40,000 liters daily.
