Malaria, cancer and childhood diseases: Diagnostic accuracy to spread to rural areas
A Cervejas de Moçambique social responsibility program is bringing drinking water to people in Nampula province’s Meconta district.
Cervejas de Moçambique (CDM) yesterday inaugurated four water standpipes in Meconta district’s Retane, Corrolane and Morromote communities in the vicinity of its Nampula plant.
The standpipes will serve about 8,000 people in the three beneficiary communities, significantly improving their living conditions, since they were previously forced to travel great distances for drinking water.
The Cervejas de Moçambique initiative has especial significance, since it coincides with World Water Day on 22 March.
Nampula province’s official celebrations took place in Namialo district, and were attended by the provincial governor, the local population, the main beneficiaries of this initiative, local government entities, traditional chiefs and Cervejas de Moçambique management personnel.
CDM Executive Director José Moreira said: “The foundation of this kind of social investment necessarily implies the engagement of all stakeholders, with particular emphasis on the final user, who is responsible for ensuring the continued operation and conservation of the infrastructure.”Source: CDM
