From Contaminated Water to Safe Water; Lusubilo Changing Lives of Many Through Provision of Clean Water
Borehole Constructed by Lusubilo with funding from the Coppel Family

Lusubilo touches lives of many people in various ways through its different programs. Apart from taking care of orphans and running agricultural, nutrition and education programs, Lusubilo also provides clean water to families that cannot access safe water. Each year, the organization drills about 10 boreholes to very vulnerable communities that do not have clean water.

The people of Mwanjabala, Kafilikisira, Mwawulambo and Mwahimba villages have good news to share about Lusubilo. Previously, the community used to suffer in a number of ways because they did not have safe water to drink. This resulted into outbreaks of diseases, such as cholera. Women were the mostly affected victims because they used to walk long distances to go and fetch water. The only source of water was the Lake malawi whose water is not treated.

Currently, the people of are happy because of the borehole that was provided by the Coppel family through Lusubilo. The borehole has served women from walking long distances to go and fetch water. This will also reduce diseases that come as result of drinking unclean water.
