This case study looks at the new gravity-fed water system at nearby Lusenda which pipes water to a number of nearby villages. Several of these villages, including Katungulu, now have access to clean, safe water from taps in the heart of the community. As a result, the Katungulu community has seen a reduction in the number of people suffering from water-borne diseases and an increase in overall family wellbeing. Tearfund has also helped the village community management committees to oversee the process of working towards a ‘healthy village’ status.
