Tchutabanthu, Mzimba, Malawi

“The installation was good and everyone was happy. They were also extremely happy because water borne diseases have been a major problem in the past. The people are poor and lack many things in their daily living. There is no health facility near them which makes them walk long distances to Mzuzu city for medication. They are all farmers but to market their produce is very difficult because they have bad roads which makes travelling difficult. Clean water will help make a difference to community health.”

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.
