All over the world, people are worried about the spread of the Corona virus. In the Netherlands, over 40,000 people are tested positively for Covid-19 disease. More than 4,500 people have died from Covid-19

In Zimbabwe, the worst is yet to come. Preventative measures are of vital importance right now. Mpilo Foundation decided to take action and your support is needed more than ever!

Mpilo means ‘life’. Life that depends for a large part on the accessibility of basic needs. The foundation mainly focuses on Zimbabwe. Almost a third of households have to walk for half an hour to fetch water. A third of the households in Zimbabwe have electricity, in the rural areas this is only 10 percent. Solar energy is sustainable. Electricity means light. Light provides safety in the dark. Electricity also means contact with the outside world. For instance by charging a mobile phone. And many people in Africa use their mobile phone for money matters.
