Drinking water wells in Malawi

capcelera_uvinum

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.

355Once 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.

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.

Healthcare attendance in isolated areas of India

nicequest_amnosunidas

In the North of the state of Maharashtra, in India, there live a tribe called “korkus”; they live in the isolated jungle and they are a very poor population.  Most “korkus” families live below the poverty threshold (more than 70%) with a high illiteracy rate (more than 60%) and their main livelihood, agriculture, is scarce.

In front of this situation, entities such as Manos Unidas carry out many projects in order to face malnutrition, prevent diseases, and improve hygienic-sanitary practices among tribal “korkus” populations in the Melghat region.

logoIn their new challenge, Nicequest users will help 2.000 people who live in isolated areas of India to have access to a healthcare attention trough Manos Unidas.

manos_unidasThis new project starts after completing the last campaign in which they facilitate the access to drinking water to more than 1.000 children, an important fact in order to prevent new cases of cholera (you can remember the project HERE).
