Kawinga, Mzimba

People of this village are very happy because they were using an open well which was dangerous to the children. In the past, some of their animals also had fallen into there well, however, since now these well are covered, they have no fear that they can lose their animals and children. They are now drinking good and safe water.

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.

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.
