Zambia - Wells and dams

Your support is an essential part of helping communities make long-term changes to improve health, grow more food and better sustain flocks and herds.

MCC is working with households and villages to increase the availability of safe nearby drinking water, clean bathing water and water for animals, gardens and sanitation. A local water development worker has been hired to coordinate the work — which includes drilling wells; improving hand-dug wells; rehabilitating old, unused boreholes; constructing cement dams and sand dams; and repairing or building earthen dams. Technicians are receiving training and tools for borehole repair. The coordinator is also administering a small loan fund to provide capital for farmers to purchase irrigation equipment and for families to build latrines.
