Transforming Lives Through Clean Water Provision
In Nkhata Bay North, four in five households don’t have clean water for drinking and washing. 60% of families don’t have access to safe toilets. At the same time, the area is so remote that it’s difficult for people to access healthcare facilities or receive health education. Some communities are a nine-hour walk from the closest clinic. Many work and school days are lost to easily preventable diseases.
Temwa’s WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) project provides simple ceramic water filters to protect people from waterborne diseases. Families pay a contribution towards the filters, which can then be reinvested in other community health initiatives. Alongside this we also deliver hygiene education and build demonstration latrines within each community we support so that families can replicate in their own homes. Read more about this project in our latest report here.
How can you help?
This year, Temwa’s Big Give Christmas Challenge will be raising money to help continue this vital work in two new remote villages’ in northern Malawi. The project will enable 742 households to access to clean water through simple but effective water filter technology, while improving understanding of sanitation and hygiene best practices, in turn reducing the prevalence of life-threatening waterborne diseases.
How does it work?
For one week only all donations made through the Big Give will be matched thanks to the generous support of our supporters and The REED Foundation, meaning that for every £1 you donate, we receive £2! Every Christmas The Big Give hosts this wonderful match funding event, where your generosity is DOUBLED without any extra cost to yourself!
We know it is a difficult time to give to charity, but with The Big Give’s #ChristmasChallenge, anything you can give immediately has TWICE the IMPACT for the benefit of communities in Nkhata Bay North.
