ABOUT THE charity

Established in 2016, this NGO’s mission is to alleviate the struggle for clean water and healthcare in the remote communities of Malawi. 1 in 3 people in Malawi do not have access to clean water, and most in remote communities have never seen a doctor. This NGO’s mission is to provide greater access to healthcare and clean drinking water in remote communities in Malawi. 

SDGs: 2, 3, 6


For this project, the photographer will be responsible for documenting the annual mobile medical camps and building of water wells in villages near Blantyre. 

With the recent devastation from Cyclone Idai that have wiped out entire refugee camps and villages, it is more vital than ever to ensure that there is access to emergency healthcare and clean water for those who need it most.
