Mr Nteula Joseph – Kaoma District

We are happy. As a village we used to experience diarrhoeal disease because we used to drink dirty water filled with faeces. We experienced worms and other diseases. The distance also has reduced hence our women have more time now to do other things. We appreciate you for providing us with protected source of water.

Namungu Village, Kalabo District

Christadelphian Meal A Day Fund supported Namungu Village with safe water and sanitation in 2015. When we first visited the community, the 206 residents had no choice but to collect water from an unprotected scoop hole just outside the village. None of the households had adequate sanitation facilities and hygiene standards were poor.  Waterborne diseases were common with health surveys showing that more than 18% of people had experienced diarrhoea in the past 7 days and 24% had eye infections.

Thanks to support from Christadelphian Meal A Day Fund, we were able to help the community with hygiene education sessions and simple sanitation solutions, then in October 2015 we installed a brand new protected pump in the heart of the community.

During a follow up visit in April 2017, we were delighted to see the village transformed! The pump was working well, producing water after just 1 stroke and filling a 20 litre container in 45 strokes. The village was spotlessly clean and every household had a pit latrine. These changes have made a huge difference to community health: just 6% of people surveyed had suffered with diarrhoea in the previous 7 days and nobody had an eye infection.

Mr Anaba Mubita – Kalabo District – Before Christadelphian Meal A Day Fund’s help

“We have been using scooping wells as our source of water, both for drinking and using for bathing, washing plates etc. But during dry seasons we have been experiencing shortages of water due to drying up of the well. During this season we normally draw water at a well situated about 1km away which doesn’t dry up.”
