This gift in action

Safe water for 10 people

Despite being the chief's wife, life was never easy for Pumulo because her village lacked a supply of clean water. Pumulo Chikote and her family live in Koba in Zambia. It used to be her and the children's job to fetch water three times a day. This gruelling task took almost five hours. And not only was the local pond miles away, but the water was dirty and regularly made the family ill with stomach pains and diarrhoea. It's a different story today thanks to a water pump which has been installed in the village. Now that the community can access clean water, not only is everyone healthier but they have more time for earning a living, looking after the home or getting an education. We consider ourselves lucky people, the water is clear and free from diseases. Since we’ve had it, no one has fallen sick, and for that we are happy. We no longer have to walk and the water is tasty.
