Carrying Life: Motherhood and Water in Malawi

Water Aid 2

WaterAid and The Wimbledon Foundation have teamed up to launch Carrying Life: Motherhood and Water in Malawi; a striking outdoor multimedia exhibition by award-winning British-Egyptian photographer, Laura El-Tantawy.

The photos will shine a light on the stories of mothers and babies in Malawi’s Ntchisi district impacted by dirty water, poor sanitation and a lack of hygiene in health centres. Launched ahead of International Women's Day, the exhibition aims to celebrate the dignity and strength of women in Ntchisi district, Malawi, whilst also drawing attention to the stark reality of the nearly one in four healthcare facilities in Malawi without clean water on site, leaving mothers and babies at risk of deadly infections. WaterAid and The Wimbledown Foundation are now working together to transform healthcare facilitates with water, sanitation and hygiene, helping communities in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Malawi and Myanmar.

The free exhibition will be in place on More London Riverside from 1 March until 14 April.
