About Mua Hospital
Electricity outages cause Mua Hospital to run out of water, sometimes for multiple days. This brings big challenges in the way the hospital can take care of people. We want to change this.

Mua Hospital was opened in 1911 and has since then provided healthcare to the Mua area. Today, eight health centers refer to the hospital for complicated cases or further diagnosis and last year over 17.600 patients received treatment or consultation at the hospital. Recently the hospital has been under renovation. The pediatric ward, labor ward have been renewed and a new theater and laboratory have been built. The lack of stable water supply at the hospital remains a big issue waiting to be resolved.
Due to unreliable electricity from the grid the pumps do not always work and the hospital regularly ends up without water. This is a big problem for the whole facility, but especially for the hospital theatre where surgeries are carried out. Besides reliable electricity to keep the pumps running, part of the infrastructure is in need of replacement.
A solar system will power a water pump, which feeds into a set of water tanks, from where the water flows to all the buildings. We aim to reinforce the base of the tank stands, replace old parts of the water storage and distribution infrastructure and implement a fence around the system.
The hospital is located in the Mua area of Malawi.

“Mua Hospital just like any other health facility cannot operate without water. The power supply interruptions make us end up with empty water tanks, this puts our patients at risk and our staff at strong discomfort. Having reliable water supply will start a new chapter for our hospital”
