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 do not have easy

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 caused also by using unsafe water. 

 

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

Health Services” in 2016. Every week we walked to all households in Lukwambe to

supply water tablets for at least 20 liters per day. We encouraged community members to

boil the water before drinking and thereby contributed to an improved health situation in

Lukwambe.
