Access to safe drinking water is a basic human need.
According to the World Health Organization, approximately 2 billion people around the world don’t have access to potable water.
Zimbabweans in far-flung rural areas rely on boreholes and wells as their primary source of water.
This oftens means women and children spend hours gathering water from distant and polluted sources, this is time that could be spent generating an income or attending school.
Perennial droughts have also affected the water supply to this land-locked country, where residents rely on lakes, rivers and dams.
The Gift of the Givers has undertaken Water Provision projects by drilling boreholes and providing clean drinking water via tankers, which has brought relief to thousands of Zimbabweans.
