What's the problem?
The water supply of the large conference centre is unreliable because it is dilapidated. It has also supplied water to people living nearby.
There is a spring in the forest, which has a sufficient flow. To use this water was difficult, because it was a few hundred meters uphill (25 meters altitude) and was overgrown with grass and reeds. This water is so clean that it can be drunk without boiling.
anamed stands for "Action Natural Medicine in the Tropics". anamed Malawi trains the local population in the cultivation of tropical medicinal plants and their use in various diseases, e.g. malaria, diarrhoea, AIDS and cancer.
What does the project cost?
The material for the water pipe had to be transported from Lilongwe to the project site. Cement and sand for the concrete were purchased locally.
Project costs: approx. 1100 Euro
