The Difference It Made!

Meet Tabbitha and Chipo

Tabbitha (left ) and Chipo (right) have lived together as widows after their husbands died three years ago in a road accident. Tabbitha is a mother to three children and Chipo is a mother to six children. She also has the added complication of being a TB patient who has been living with HIV for the past eight years. It is very difficult for them to walk from their compound to a borehole for water, which is about two kilometers away to fetch water in the morning and evening for household use such as washing, bathing and cooking.

"When my husband died three years ago, everything changed,” Chipo said. “My husband used to fetch water for the whole family using an ox-drawn cart since the distance was close to three kilometers away. We had to sell our oxen to pay for our children's school fees and now we are left with nothing. Sometimes we would go without bathing trying to save water for cooking only.”

Both widows are thankful to Brother Chibisa (middle) who brought water close to our doorstep through servicing this borehole after such a long time. Even though Chipo struggles with sickenss and often can’t fetch water, even her young children can help the whole family now. “This came as a blessing and we thank you for your love and care," said Chipo.
