Phalula village is a poor, rural village in the Thyolo in Malawi. This village, along with three others, were determined to be in URGENT need of clean water. The water source for these villages is worse than “normal”. The water-borne diseases are at an all time high. The water source is shared with animals and is polluted with animal waste. In addition, those who collect wood for fires called Firewood Fetchers are known to dirty the water.
The people suffer from cholera, diarrhea, dysentery and bilharzia (schistosomiasis).
Our ministry partner, Charles Mithowa, is the main director for these projects. This will be the 8th well project to be completed.
Providing a well in this village would meet the huge need for clean water. The well will save lives, the people will experience good health, they will not have to walk distances for water that makes them sick. They will have safe, clean water for drinking, cooking, bathing, laundry and all household needs. They would have water for gardens to grow food near their homes. Kids could go to school instead of spending the day fetching water.
The village is located 15°54’11.0″S 35°02’00.0″E
