Planted a tree
The municipality of Lwamgasa is about 1.5 hours away from Geita (Tanzania). The gold rush has broken out in the nearby area. Private individuals try their luck with the search for gold. Mercury is used to bind the gold dust from the rock. As a result, groundwater near the surface is contaminated with mercury over a wide area.
In the municipality of Lwamgasa we plan to drill a deep well to get clean water. This is then to be used as drinking water in the community.
