Malawi is the third-poorest country in the world. It is a country where there isn’t enough of just about anything–including clean drinking water. The women of Malawi must typically carry five gallons of water on their heads for long distances just to provide water for their families. Anything that makes that distance shorter is a tremendous blessing.
LifeNets has already provided financing for a dozen high-quality water wells in Malawi, and has just received a grant from the Rotary Foundation that will finance three more wells. LifeNets will be responsible to carry out the contracting for drilling and maintaining the three wells, one in Blantyre and two in Salima. All three wells will be on public property and will serve the entire community in each area.
