Maheya, Mzimba

They people here had dug a well near their home, however it was dangerous because it was not sufficiently not covered to prevent diseases collecting in the water. They are grateful to drop4drop for covering these wells and installing the pumps. Now they have good and safe water in the village.

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 drop4drop 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.
