Alekenianene, Kasungu, Malawi
“Many gathered to see for themselves the installation of the pump in the village. The water situation had been pathetic. They used to get water from open wells not safe to human beings. They are very grateful to Wells for Zoë for the first response when they requested for help. About 85 km from Kasungu, Boma is on the eastern side. Many people grow flue-cured tobacco which needs a lot of fire wood and all natural trees were cut down because of this. Many people live in grass thatched houses.”
This project was undertaken as part of our campaign of projects that actively reduce carbon emissions. This project helped the community save their much needed wood which was previously being burnt daily to boil water. This project has also eliminated the many thousands of hours previously spent on walking to collect water.
