The cooperative's first project was to drill wells and provide safe drinking water to two villages. With the additional gains from Fair Trade, they have expanded this project to 10 wells for more villages in the area. Before, the water supply was unsanitary and frequently caused diseases such as bilharzia, cholera and dysentery.
Kasinthula supplied the local health clinic with 20,000 tablets of Praziquantel, a medication required for the treatment of bilharzia. Despite the commonality of this disease, the government clinic had operated without this medicine for years.
Four bicycle ambulances were also purchased with Fair Trade premiums to help remote families in villages not accessible by motor vehicles get faster medical attention.
