In August 2011 villagers of Mawa-Msindo in Namtumbo district in southern Tanzania had the privillege of getting clean water. Villagers got donation from the US through St. Maurus Hanga Abbey to buy pipes. Locally, the villagers dug the trench and laid pipes. Both men and women, adults and children, got involved in the work. Women, of course, are happiest to have the water becase they do not have to walk great distances anymore searching for water.
