Water in Hwange ZIMBABWE
Guest Speaker: Super Dube
Super is the Diocesan Coordinator for Caritas Hwange in Zimbabwe. Over 360,000 people live in the diocese. Poor rain-fall, higher than average temperatures and a lack of fertile soil, result in food shortages across the district. One of the biggest challenges confronting the community is lack of clean water and access to sanitation. Residents including children often walk long distances each day, occasionally threatened by wild animals such as crocodiles, to collect contaminated water for domestic use.
Super manages Caritas Hwange’s Integrated Community Development Program, supported by Caritas Australia.
Passionate about development work, Super draws satisfaction from the contribution that he has been able to make to his community. “Mine is a job with meaning that aligns with my values…”
