Drinking water in Mozambique
Drinking water for the children in Mozambique.
Welcoming the need expressed by the Congregation of Franciscan Hospitaller Sisters of the Immaculate Conception, our subsidiary in Mozambique - Profuro International Ltd - has built a turnkey drinking water well for the children community of “4 de Outubro” in the district of Marracuene, in the Maputo province.
The project was also given an important contribution by the Rotary Club of Cosenza Nord in Italy, belonging to the Rotary International District 2100, and was divided into a few steps: firstly, geophysical investigations were conducted to identify the well, as well as hydrological surveys to assess the quality of water; the surveys were followed by drilling and the installation of a submergible pump; then the tank for water collection was created and the distribution network put in place. The project has provided the community with drinking water, which is fundamental to meet their health and food needs.
