Drilling boreholes in the rural communities of Zambia
The Finance Bank Zambia under Dr. Rajan Mahtani’s chairmanship partnered with World Vision Zambia to drill boreholes in the rural communities of the country. With the Mukango water project 11 boreholes were drilled in 11 different districts of the country. Now the people who live in those rural areas have an access to safe and clean drinking water. However, the situation was not same before. The women of the families had to walk through a long way to fetch water from the pond, which was very dirty. By drinking that water they used to suffer from waterborne diseases.
