Dutch company connects 5000 residents to clean water in Ndola’ s townships

General News Dutch company connects 5000 residents to clean water in Ndola’ s townships

Habitat for Humanity Zambia in association with Allsecur Allianz – a Netherlands based insurance company has put up two water kiosks to provide clean and safe drinking water to more than 5,000 people of Ndola’s Kaloko and NdekeTownships

Habitat for Humanity Zambia Programmes Officer, Joyce Mbimbi said the organization through its water, sanitation and hygiene programme will continue providing safe drinking water.

Ms. Mbimbi pledged the organization’s continued support to the country’s water and sanitation sectors, stating the support will also be extended towards the alleviation of housing deficit across the country provided the funds are available.

Meanwhile, Allsecur Allianz Pricing and Business Analyst Manager, Michiel Zwijnerburg said his organization has secured funds to support 20 vulnerable families in the country with decent accommodation before the end of 2019.

He added the company also seeks to construct more water kiosks in Lusaka to enable more families have access to clean and safe drinking water.

Mr. Zwijnerburg emphasized the need to provide clean water to less privileged community as the only way to combating waterborne diseases.

And Ndola Mayor Amon Chisenga who was represented by Twapia ward Councillor Gilbert Musonda thanked Habitat for Humanity and Allsecur Allianz for helping the two communities with clean points of water.

Mr. Chisenga also implored Kafubu Water and Sewerage Company to ensure unserviced areas have access to piped water adding that challenges of safe drinking water are still a challenge in many unplanned settlements which are now being legalized.


    • And when Westerners say they’re our saviors and that we can’t take care of ourselves, we begin to argue. In this day and age, you’re still looking to foreigners to come into your country to take care of your people. Very shameful. And legalizing these shanty compounds is not the way to go. The goal should be to get rid of these eyesore shanty townships and put High-rise apartments in their place. That’s progress and meaningful development.

  1. Watch out for vandals. We are very talented at vandalism. We had telephones , hydrants, station shelters at every corner and dust bins for each household. All these we destroyed after independence.

  2. Lungu wants foreign bail out of Zambia’s debts ,foreigners to invest and foreigners to print ballots. See he’s how he’s created a culture of dependency always waiting for foreign saviours who are now providing clean water?
