The project under the ‘Water for Life’ initiative, has the capacity to pump 51,000 litres per day and has been constructed at the cost of 88m/-.

Moshi Municipal Council Head of Human Resources and Administration Department, Wenceslaus Lindi thanked the company’s initiative and urged residents to safeguard the well for sustainable use.

“This is a very important development, make sure that you safeguard it,” he said, requesting SBL to extend similar assistance to other wards with water problems and pledged support for the company in the future.

SBL Managing Director, Helene Wessie said they are keen in building relations with communities through the company’s sustainability and responsibility programme.

She thanked all who made the project a success and said that adequate and reliable supply of water will ease the burden on residents who had to walk long distances in search of water.

“This project will specifically help women engage in other development activities and girls to go to school,” she said, adding that she hoped that the engagement will have a lasting effect.

Pasua Ward Executive Officer, Awadhi Mfinanga said the commissioning of the project was a great relief to the people.

“Water supply was inadequate here, this will help us in many ways,” he said.
This is not the first time SBL assists communities to get access to clean and safe water.

In 2014, SBL commissioned and handed over a water project that produces 4,000 litres daily to Mkamba Dispensary in Temeke District in Dar es Salaam Region.

Other operational ‘Water for Life’ projects are at Frelimo Hospital in Iringa Region, Mawenzi Hospital in Kilimanjaro Region, Sekou Toure Hospital in Mwanza Region, Mletele and Tanga Hospitals in Ruvuma Region and Temeke Hospital in Dar es Salaam Region.

All these projects are providing clean and safe water to over 700,000 people.
