SAFE AND CLEAN WATER IN LUKWAMBE

We realized that many of

Lukwambe´s villagers are facing

serious health problems.

They drink untreated and unsafe

water and they do not get easily

access to basic health

services, as the nearest hospital is

located in Bwawani, 17 km away.

We have discovered that most

people do not boil the water before drinking or cooking, instead they use untreated water

straight from the river. Many locals suffer from Typhoid, Cholera, amoebic dysentery and

worms which can be also caused by using unsafe water. 

 

To combat this, we have started a project called “Safe Clean Water and Basic Health

Services” since  2016. Three times per week, we walk to every household in Lukwambe to

supply water tablets for at least 20 litres per day. We train community members to boil the

water before drinking and contribute in this way for a better health situation in

Lukwambe.
