Zileke Shangaya, Mzimba
Sadly in the past people in Zileka Shangaya have lost their lives from using unclean water. Now that drop4drop have installed them a pump they are very happy. They have also enjoyed the tree replanting programme and are requesting more seeds in the area so that they can cover the bare land with trees.
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.
