Creating a Rainwater Catchment System
With our partner, WellAware from Austin, Texas, Humanity for Children is creating a rainwater catchment system in the remote Tanzanian village of Kimotorok. The underground water in that area is unhealthy to drink because of high fluoride levels, so the only way for this village to have potable water is to collect it during the rainy seasons and to store it in underground cisterns and above the ground tanks. Our colleagues -- Toto, Israel, and Fred -- are there representing HFC as the WellAware staff installs rooftop gutters on the school and clinic, filtering systems, and ultra-violet light systems to eliminate bacteria and viruses. Thanks WellAware for your partnership on this important project!
