Solidar Suisse has been supporting the construction and reparation of wells in Mozambique since 2011. We provide access to drinking water and sanitation facilities and raise awareness about hygiene. In doing so, we enable tens of thousands of people to live a better life.
Inadequate supply of drinking water
In rural areas less than half of the population has access to a well that provides drinking water. People who lack access to drinking water often become ill, die earlier or are no longer able to make a living. Many people are not properly informed about hygiene and disease. Often the existing wells are poorly maintained and reparations take too long.
By constructing and repairing wells and small-scale water systems, Solidar Suisse provides access to clean drinking water and hygiene – which were already key pre-requisites for a better life before Covid-19.
In the districts of Macate (Manica province), Chibabava (Sofala province) and Doa (Tete province) we train local water committees so that they can maintain water sources themselves. We build toilet facilities for healthcare centres and primary schools and educate children about hygiene.
Solidar Suisse is part of the Swiss Water & Sanitation Consortium, which is an association of eight Swiss NGOs that implement water projects in ten African and Asian countries.
