Mafuta Kaunda

People were extremely happy to have a pump in the village. They had a Marion mission pump which was broken some 7 years ago so people were drawing water from Open wells which was not safe. The installation went on well.  The people are poor but they depend on the farming for their daily living. Due to higher prices of fertiliser many could not afford to buy fertiliser for their gardens making them to have poor harvest causing hunger in the village.
