Chakwanika

This is one of the villages that are affected with cholera every year. Most of the people in the village do not have toilets and they help themselves in the bush causing more diseases during the rainy season. They really appreciate Wells for Zoё for giving them good water which will save lives in the village. 

Most of them are fishermen and they are business men and women. The other problem besides water is that the hospital is very far. This makes them face more problems especially when they get sick. Nursery schools are there but they lack training and workshops.
