Thanks to a recently completed clean water project in Lusaka the capital of Zambia Central Africa, people of the Msisi compound which has an estimated population of over 400,000, mostly children, now have access to clean, safe water.
Bishop Benson Chiwoma, coordinator of the project in Africa, said, “The clean water will allow for successful agriculture, food and energy production. Most importantly, it will cut down on waterborne diseases and allow the children healthy development and a better chance at survival.”
CW4K Founder, Greg Stromberg added, “It makes us feel good knowing that we’re making a difference in people’s lives. To know we’ve helped an entire village is a big win.”
On March 12th, 13th and 14th, CW4K will be participating in the “Building a Healthier Future Summit”, sponsored by Partnership for a Healthier America. The event will take place in Washington DC and will feature a keynote address by First Lady, Michelle Obama.
