Concern Universal aims to create 480 water points in Malawi over the next four years to bring clean water to 120,000 people. Given the terrain, this is an ambitious programme so we need to update our drilling kit by buying a new compressor, ensuring our water rig can run at maximum efficiency.

One in six people worldwide (that‚Äôs 894 million) are without access to enough safe water. In 2010, the UN declared access to clean water and sanitation a basic human right, with the stipulation that the water source should be no further than a kilometre from home and collection time should not exceed 30 minutes. Without clean water, communities are ravaged by deadly sicknesses like cholera or diarrhoea and walking for miles to collect it precludes children from education and women from working.
We aim to create 480 clean water points in Malawi over the next four years to bring clean water to 120,000 people - and in order to do so we need to update our drilling kit by buying a new compressor, to make sure our water rig can run at maximum efficiency. Concern Universal does not just ‚Äòdrop in and drill‚Äô; all our water work includes training and educating the community in how to maintain their clean water supply, as well as teaching on good sanitation and health.
