Just recently, Rhema Institute for Development commissioned an ambitious K80million piped water project at Dowa Turn off Trade Centre in Dowa district.
Semu said for a long time people in the area have been drinking contaminated water together with livestock.
Semu said for the first time in this country, people will be using water credit cards provided to draw water from the taps in their homes and water kiosks put up at Dowa turn off. “This is technology at its best because we can switch off the tap while at the office and monitor water levels using laptops and phones,” He said.
Semu was accompanied by the Deputy Minister of Local Government who is also Member of Parliament for Dowa South East Constituency Halima Daud.
During the launch , Daudi said the piped water project at Dowa Turn off and surrounding communities will help people with easy access to clean and safe water thereby reducing water borne diseases.
A multi million water project which Rhema has been championing at Dowa Turn off in the area of Traditional Authority Mkukula started last year with laying of pipes and digging the drainages.
Currently thousand of people there are benefitting from the project.
