In November 2020, €4,500 was awarded to the Missionaries of Africa for the purchase and installation of water tanks at the community of lepers at Kombolcha, Amhara, Ethiopia.
The intention was to help these very disadvantaged people have access to drinking water, washing water and water for their gardens as on many occasions the water from the local municipality does not reach this community. It was also to assist in the capture of rain water during rainy seasons for use during dry seasons. The project was completed in April 2021.
