FOMO over the years have put in a number of water tanks to collect water from the FOMO centre and school hostels roofs. The water collected though not suitable for drinking without treatment helps to supplement water used for washing, laundry, toilets and small vegetable plots.
We are pleased to announce that we have to date installed ten 5000/6000 liter tanks funded by private donations, Rotary Club of the UK and the German Embassy of Malawi Fund.
The main problems are supply materials, supply of hand made bricks, sand out of the river, high rise in the cost of cement, limited supply of imported guttering, pipes, clips etc. It all a bit of a challenge, but manageable.
If you wish to fund a tank it cost £500 per installation and will help to reduce the fluctuations in water supply. It’s good practice makes sense to install tanks and reduce the need and cost of boreholes or treated mains water for those lucky few who are connected.
