Water for Life - Introduction

MM has completed a number of water projects in Tunguli, in particular rainwater harvesting at the Health Centre and both primary and secondary schools. These projects have made a real difference, helping to ease the effects of drought, and are much valued by the local communities. But there remains a wider need for reliable, clean water and effective sanitation. Poor water and sanitation is responsible for many deaths and illnesses, especially of children under five, and there is much more to do in and around Tunguli to improve this situation. Such works are commonly known as WASH (WAter Sanitation & Hygiene) projects and MM is now beginning an ambitious programme to implement these in Tunguli, Msamvu and surrounding hamlets. We are calling this programme Water for Life and, as always, your continued support is vital. Please return to this blog for updates, we will do our best to keep you informed..
