Kachingwe, Mzimba, Malawi

“People were very happy as we were entering the village. No pump had ever been installed before in the village. They had been willing to have good water for years but no one helped them. They are very thankful to WfZ for giving the village safe and good water.

The village is situated near the border of Malawi and Zambia. Good roads are far from the village, making movement from one place to another difficult during the rainy season. Hospitals are very far from village. They have no trees in the village as all trees were cut due to cultivation.”

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.
