Bore holes (deep wells) in Malawi
Since the summer of 2008, Monroe Street UMC has sponsored the development of three new bore holes in Malawi. The bore holes are deep wells that are used to provide water to people who otherwise did not have local access to clean water. The absence of clean water leads to dysentery, malaria, and other health problems. By providing these bore holes, miles of walking carrying heavy buckets of water is avoided, as is sharing water sources with hundreds of animals. This effort is led primarily by the efforts of Reverend Rosemary Brown, inspired during her mission trip to Malawi.
