Water Bores

Machinga water pumps

In October 2012, two water pumps were installed in the Machinga area. One pump was installed at the primary school; the other was installed at Chaphuka to be used by the local community.

The Malawi National Policy of Water dictates the community must take the responsibility to maintain the hand pump and must also be involved in the construction and installation of the hand pump.

The community will be in charge of maintenance, health and safety and management of monthly contributions to buy new parts for the pump.
