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 largely depends on the accessibility of basic needs. Mpilo Foundation mainly focuses on Zimbabwe. Almost a third of households have to walk for half an hour to fetch water. Only a third of all households have electricity, a number that drops to just 10% in the rural areas. Solar energy is sustainable. Electricity means light. Light provides safety in the dark. Electricity also means contact with the outside world. For instance, it allows locals to charge their mobile phones. And many people in Africa use their mobile phone to generate a source of income.
