Half of the worlds hospital beds are filled with people suffering from a water-related disease
45,000 people in our area need clean, safe water.testing
We have initiated a safe water programme and intend to ensure that everyone in our area (around 45,000 people) has access to clean, safe water.
We support 14 centres, each with a number of satellite villages (anything up to 40).
We install purpose-built water collectors (see below) and also build rammed earth water harvesters.

When we receive 1mm of rain and it falls on 1 square metre of roof we get one litre of water. Malawi gets an annual average rainfall of around 800mm per year. If that rain falls on an average class-room of say 100 square metres, then 80,000 litres of rain can be harvested in one season.
