What's the problem?
The water of the public water supply is not treated and therefore has to be boiled. Prison Fellowship Malawi offers up to 40 released prisoners in five months the opportunity to receive training in a trade, receive pastoral care and learn to forgive.*)
Up to 50 people live on the premises, for whom cooking is necessary. Firewood is expensive and boiling water with it is a time-consuming business. Drinkable water from the tap would be a great relief
*) Sometimes people are arrested innocently or without conviction. Some have stolen a chicken or goat in order to survive. For this they get 3-4 years or 6-7 years in prison.
In cooperation with Prison Fellowship Malawi, private sponsors from the USA and Canada, we installed a water treatment system with chlorine in November 2015 and trained the staff in operation and maintenance. The M-100 from WaterStep was used. Salt, water and electricity are enough to disinfect the water with the M-100.
As a result, the water from the tap is now directly drinkable and no longer needs to be boiled. Besides, the installation of chlorination is also a contribution against deforestation and erosion. Deforestation is a very big problem in Malawi.
