The Rev. Geoffrey Monjesa, development officer for the diocese of Masasi, took a group of Canadian Anglicans to the water pump in Ndomoni in southern Tanzania. "Until the pump was installed at the end of January 2017, most of Ndomoni's 1,321 residents walked up to eight kilometres to the nearest village to get water, or relied on surface water from ponds, which required boiling. Now, because of a project funded by the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) as part of a nutrition and food security project (known locally as the Community Health Improvement Project, or CHIP, which came to a close in March 2017), this walk has been shortened to a little more than a kilometre. The Canadians are members of a PWRDF delegation that has come to the diocese of Masasi to learn more about All Mothers and Children Count (AMCC), a larger project that builds off work done during CHIP. Though AMCC is focused on maternal and newborn child health, Monjesa uses this trip to the borehole to show how interconnected different aspects of the development projects are: there is a vast web of factors that affect health, and water is one of the most essential".
