Chiyona Nyirenda, Mzimba
There were many problems before drop4drop started operating in the area. Clean water was a very big issue here. Women used to draw water up from unprotected sources but now the whole community is enjoying the safe water source because of drop4drop. They are very thankful to drop4drop for helping them.Our 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.
Throughout the country, millions of people are forced to risk their own health as well as their families due to not having a reliable and safe water source to drink from. The real danger of contracting nasty illnesses and even catching life-threatening diseases is something our projects aim to eradicate.
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.
