Helping Clean Water Flow in Malawi
Edna Nampelo and her children would suffer for months whenever the well in their small village in Malawi broke down. Since nobody in her community knew how to repair the well, Edna was forced to collect water from contaminated sources. When a Presbyterian World Service & Development-supported water, sanitation and hygiene project was introduced in her village, Edna was keen to participate. She learned how to maintain new water sources for the long-term. Edna can now repair the well that brings clean water to her village. “This will help us to have safe drinking water all the time,” she shares. Enabling communities to take control of their well-being helps ensure lasting hope, health and vitality for families like Edna’s.
