But whilst most people in developed countries take the constant supply of safe fresh water to their homes for granted, the lack of clean drinking water in Nathenje Village is a critical problem. The elders of Nathenje Village dream of having access to clean water nearby their homes. They have a long walk down to the dirty watering hole with their jerry can. Water borne diseases like typhoid, cholera and dysentery, and malaria carrying mosquitoes lurk in this dirty water. People then get sick and then can’t work, so the families go hungry. Some even die. Unika is a small charity organisation dedicated to changing that reality for many communities and institutions throughout Malawi by installing simple and accessible boreholes and shallow wells. Please help us bring the wonderful gift of clean drinking water to communities to stay healthy, active and sustained.
Your donations are urgently needed to provide more clean water – because “Water really is Life!”
