The main sponsors of the Project were UN-Habitat and the Order of Malta Embassy, along with valuable contributions for local organisation as well as individuals. "This project showcases affordable and sustainable technology and demonstrates that modest investments can have a significant impact," said the Order of Malta Ambassador, Mr. Gianfranco Cicogna.

The three MECKOW Aquapur units will provide safe drinking water for a community of around 4,000 people with the excess water providing water for neighbours. A Community appointed Committee has been put in place to manage and operate the facility. It is envisaged that any excess funds generated for the sale of safe drinking water will be used to up grade other requirements within the community.

Meckow International would like to thank everyone involved in bringing this valuable Project to fruition.
