NTCHEU-(MaraviPost)-Water and Sanitation Minister, Abida Mia on Saturday, November 19, 2022 lauded World Vision Malawi for water and sanitation projects that helping very remote communities across the country.

Mia observes that such projects are implementing government efforts in providing communities with access of portable water for hygiene.

Mia said government is ready to provide direction to concerned players to ensure that their interventions must improve lives of vulnerable Malawians.

The minister was speaking at Galeta Primary school, Traditional Authority (T.A) Njolomole in Ntcheu district when she commissioned a solar powered water system constructed with support from World Vision Malawi (WVM).

“World Vision Malawi has been a key partner of the Malawi government for so many years. There’s nothing more essential to life on earth than water. Yet, across Malawi, from Chitipa to Nsanje and Nkhotakota to Mchinji, people are struggling to access the quantity and quality of water they need for
drinking, cooking, bathing, handwashing, and growing their food.

“I would like to assure you that your efforts are in direct support to President Lazarus Chakwera’s Tonse Alliance government efforts towards attaining SDG6 on good health and access to clean water,” assures Mia.

WVM Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (Wash) Technical Program Manager, Isaiah Odiambo Sei said the organization is committed to helping Malawi achieve the universal Wash coverage target by 2030.

Sei says the organization is drilling boreholes and constructing solar powered water systems in 14 districts in the country.

In 2023, World Vision is expected to drill 137 boreholes; 12 VIP latrines in 12 schools and construct VIP latrines in six health facilities in different communities in Malawi.

The organisation has invested over US$30 million dollars in drilling and mechanizing boreholes, installing water taps and training communities to grow the resources for the future.
