Rain Water Harvest System BuiltReported by Rebero Jean d'Amour, Story written by Amanda Mulder
Water Project volunteers built a Rain Water Harvest System on the SEIRA Community Church in the village of Mugwato. The system is expected to serve 500 local residents.
We place these rainwater collection tanks at centrally-located churches, which shortens the walk for water and improves water quality. Churches sell the water at an affordable rate and use the income to maintain the system. Remaining funds are given to the poorest members of the community for school fees, health insurance, and other basic needs.
