January is a time for reset, for reflection, and for getting your head down and getting through the hard post-Christmas months before the welcome signs of spring start to show! For many of us, December has been an indulgent month with lots of well deserved mince pies, roast dinners, eggnog and baileys hot chocolates! 

If like us, you need a break, but don’t want to make January even harder, sign up to dry January and fundraise for communities in northern Malawi. 

Help communities in Malawi access clean drinking water.

Four out of five households in Malawi do not have access to clean drinking water. Waterborne diseases are common meaning families have to spend the small amount of money they do earn on hospital transport and healthcare fees. 

Temwa provides simple ceramic water filters to protect people from waterborne diseases. Families pay a contribution towards the filters, which is reinvested in other community health initiatives. We also provide hygiene education and build demonstration toilets that families can replicate in their homes. Read more about Temwa’s water filter project here. 

You can help fund this work by giving up alcohol in January so sign up now!
