Casa Partida Q3, Beira, Mozambique
DROP4DROP have teamed up with our in-country partner to provide clean water to Beira, a a city in the Central Region of Mozambique. Currently only half of Mozambicans have access to improved water supply across the country. Beira lies at the mouth of the two major rivers, the Buzi and Punwe. The city, in the central Sofala province, experienced major flooding after the landfall of tropical cyclone Freddy. DROP4DROP and our in-country partner are working tirelessly to reach as many rural communities as we can and provide a sustainable source of clean water to those struggling without access. The Beira project is also dedicated to the memory of the late Robert Richards, film maker, fundraiser and campaigner, who first visited the country with Michael Eavis and Emily Eavis on behalf of Glastonbury Festival in 2006.
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.
