Chilomba, Mzimba

This is Chikande, V.H Chilomba. The people here have tried to approach many different organisations for support in gaining access to clean water in the area but all seemed futile. It was like a dream come true when they heard of drop4drop installing pumps in the area. They came to know about drop4drop during a pump launch in Embangweni. They are happy now because it is the first time in the area people are using clean and safe water.

DROP4DROP’s mission in Malawi is not only to provide local communities with specialised water wells and pumps that suit their situation, but to give them the tools and knowledge they need to maintain and use the equipment for themselves.

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.
