"At the end of the project, the Nankumba area in Mangochi will have been fully covered, and twenty thousand new homes will have access to clean potable water in less than 500 meters away from the houses", says Stefan Jon Hafstein, ICEIDA Country Director in Malawi.  

A water and sanitation project initiated in 2007 was completed by end of 2010. Four hundred wells were dug and fitted with pumps in the Nankumba area, and village communities trained in operation and maintenance of the facility and educated about water and sanitation.
