Malawi is one of the poorest countries in Africa. Living conditions are harsh, almost 90% of the population lives on subsistence agriculture. There are no infrastructures that channel the water of the great lake of the country, the farmers depend on rainwater, which makes them extremely vulnerable.
Once collected the necessary amount to guarantee that 400 children receive annual treatment against childhood malnutrition in Kenia (you can remember the project HERE), the customers of Uvinum start a new challenge in order to distribute drinking water in Malawi.
They will do it together with Active Africa, a NGO which is dedicated to improving the socio-economic and sustainable development of the poorest rural populations in Malawi and Kenya.
Thanks to the construction of a water well, the population of Nkhotakota (one of the most deprived regions of Malawi), will avoid having to collect water in exposed places (such as rivers, streams, lakes or ponds), a great source of water diseases.
At the same time, women and children and children in the region will not have to travel long distances to find water, which will facilitate the continued enrolment of children, especially in the case of girls.
Euro to euro, Uvinum’s customers will facilitate that Active Africa can build a well in the district of Nkhotakota and provide Access to drinking water to 600 people.
