At Krombacher, we know how important water is, which is why we've teamed up with Welthungerhilfe to launch the Krombacher Drinking Water Project in Africa. Together, we are working not only to secure drinking water supplies, but also to improve sanitation and hygiene conditions so that local people can live healthier lives in the long term.

In Kenya and Malawi, people suffer particularly from the lack of clean water. Here we help sustainably and make sure to accompany the communities in the long term – guaranteed for the next ten years.

Krombacher: Ms. Otho, what is meant by WASH measures??

Noelyne Otho: 'WASH' stands for water, sanitation and hygiene. It's not just about building wells. The goal is better water quality. This requires improved sanitation-. Hygiene options for the African population.

Krombacher: They say WASH measures can save lives. How do you mean the?

Noelyne Otho: Every day, 2 people die worldwide.195 children under 5 die of diarrheal diseases due to poor hygiene, poor sanitation or unclean drinking water. Hygiene in the form of regular hand washing can reduce the risk of contracting diarrhea by one third. But water is so much more than thirst quenching and hygiene.

Krombacher: What exactly?

Noelyne Otho: Access to water makes life safer and more equal, because it is mostly women and girls who bear the burden of fetching water; it favors economic development, because there is more time for attending school and providing for families. And, of course, it also enables cultivation for personal use. It is the basic prerequisite for one's own development.

Krombacher: The project also includes water treatment, wastewater management, sanitation and hygiene concepts?

Noelyne Otho: Exactly. It's important to work together with community members to address this ie in a holistic way. And involving them in planning and implementation from the outset so that they can continue the project independently later on.
