Zinyamazana, Mzimba, Malawi

“This village is very big and there are lots of people. They have a Marion Mission pump which gives salty water and everyone is refusing to use it because of the bad water. They decided to dig a new well and apply for a new WfZ pump. They are now enjoying good water from the Wells for Zoё pump and they appreciate the help. You can only find women and children in most houses, whilst men have gone to seek ‘greener pastures’ in South Africa. Most of the villagers depend on farming. Some bluegum trees can be seen in the area but no natural trees.”

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.
