Kabanana village in Zambia. 345 families. This Christmas we can change their lives. Forever!
Climate change has led to a persistent drought in the dry Gwembe Valley region of southern Zambia.
Surface water sources have dried up and underground sources such as wells have also either dried up or been impacted drastically leaving low levels of water. Rural communities have been the most affected as their only water sources are unsafe, surface and shallow wells. The village of Kabanana, some 70-80 miles south-east of capital, Lusaka, is among the worst-affected areas where livestock have been dying due to lack of pasture and water.
With your help this holiday season, ADRA will survey a potentially high-yielding water area, drill and install a solar-powered water point. This will provide clean and safe water for the families (2,100 people) of Kabanana. The well will have a solar powered submersible pump, a tank and pipework to reduce hard labour in pumping, and to facilitate multiple stand taps to reduce crowding. The well will feature a livestock drinking trough to provide overflow water to goats, chickens and cattle.
We need £10,000 to do this.
If we raise more we will target two additional villages in the area: Sitinkwi and Mulindi.
Please help us to help this Christmas!
