World Vision Malawi (WVM) on Thursday handed over a water project to Muloza communities at a function held at Thundu Primary School in Traditional Authority (TA) Njema in Mulanje.
Speaking after presenting the project, WVM national director Hazel Nyathi said the initiative will help improve the communities’ livelihoods.
“The situation the communities [faced] without clean water was a bad one. The sad thing is that this area has a big river, Muloza, but the people could not access the water. Now that this project is successfully completed, the women and children will benefit a lot,” she said.
Limbuli Constituency member of Parliament Daud Chida (Independent) commended WVM for the gesture, saying communities around the area, especially children, will benefit from the project.
In his remarks, director of water supply in the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development John Kumwenda described the project as a landmark development to the area.
“We would like to thank World Vision Malawi for this initiative here in Muloza. The people of these communities will now have clean water,” he said.
A total of 171 water taps that are expected to serve over 30 000 people have been constructed in 59 villages.
