This study was carried to investigate the effects of poor water supply to the community of Kamuda Sub-County, Soroti District, Eastern Uganda. Data was collected through the use of questionnaires accompanied by observation and questionnaires. The study involved a sample of 50 respondents; these were all involved in different activities at different levels. The study further revealed 40% access water through wells implying that it was the common source of water around, 15% of the respondents access water from boreholes and other places like; swamps, river channels implying that boreholes were constructed due to scarcity of water around and those who accessed water from swamps and river channels also could not access sources. It was it can be adhered to that, almost two out of three people without access to clean water live a day. In urban areas, rapid migration into cities often outpaces governments’ people. Many water and sanitation utilities have poor performance records and have failed to increase access for the urban poor. Finally, a number of recommendations were made like; Foster higher participation by women and disadvantaged groups in water projects and water user groups, particularly women heads of households, Invest significant project resources in building the capacity, Facilitate greater involvement and build the capacity of organizations that support communities (NGO5 and the local private sector) in order to promote the sustainability of Rural Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
