Australian Aid rescues Hurungwe villagers


A SOLAR-POWERED water system at Zvipani business centre has come to the assistance of hundreds of villagers, who now have access to clean water.

Zvipani situated about 70 kilometres west of Karoi town is under Hurungwe Rural District Council ward 25, Chief Dandawa.

Local councillor David Mushawasha said the solar-powered water system has improved water and sanitation in the community.

“We are currently servicing over 100 households and the business community through a solar-powered system. It is good for sanitation as we built eight squat hole toilets of which two are for the disabled,” Mushawasha said.

The project was funded through the Australian Aid for Zvipani Piped Water Scheme.

“We had a single borehole that was unreliable,” a shopkeeper Gladys Njarika said.

Mushawasha said the partnership that was started in 2016 was paying dividends, as the business community was paying minimal fees to guards manning the solar panels against vandalism and theft.

Mushawasha said the toilets also cater for the physically handicapped.
