In late 2016, Temwa piloted a Water Filter Project in Nkhata Bay North, a remote region in northern Malawi - the 6th Poorest country in the world. It project aims to prevent the contraction and spread of waterborne diseases and water related illnesses (Diarrhoea, Bilharzia and Cholera) prevalent in the area due to these contamination water sources, through the provision of water filters and health training.
The project also seeks to address the long-term and short-term causes of contaminated water in the area through training in water, sanitation and hygiene as well as water related training included in our agriculture and forestry programme. The successful pilot saw a dramatic reduction in water borne diseases and is gradually being rolled out to 22 villages - if you would like to be part of this please get in touch.
