Msaukile, Kasungu, Malawi
“The installation was good. Women and children sung songs to show their happiness as the installation was in progress. In the past Red Cross was in the area drilling boreholes in the area but since they left most of pumps installed are broken and people went back to draw water from wells. The communities are friendly to all visitors coming to work in the village. Roads are in bad shape preventing many from working in the area. There is no health facility in the area and when they get sick they walk long distances for medication. There are no preschools and children often start primary school when they are too old.”
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.
