2024 Project Summary

A grant of £1000 to support the reconstruction of a borehole as Nansonjo Primary School in Blantyre. The borehole was damaged by Cyclone Freddy in 2023 and restoring it will once again provide a clean water supply to the students, teachers and surrounding households. The grant will help purchase the equipment needed to repair the borehole while the community will provide other materials, labour and support.

Brown Mtekela, Programme Coordinator with RESARU explained that the project will reduce the burden of travelling long distances for clean water and also help in reducing the incidence of waterborne diseases such as cholera.
