This area faces a lot of challenges. With water being the biggest as they have access to clean water. A part from that, they also have no health facility near by. They walk long distances to go to Embangweni mission hospital for medication if they are sick. They are very thankful to drop4drop for reducing the problem of water in the village.
The lack of access to clean drinking water is a prominent issue facing the people of Malawi. With a dense population of close to 20 million people, half are reported to live below the poverty line with a quartering experiencing extreme poverty.
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.
