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
