German TV channel DW broadcast this story about Eswatini featuring our Hot Water Station donation on their Eco Africa show. The story was broadcast multiple times on DW's English and French channels starting on 7 May 2021.
It was our privilege to host DW journalist Stefan Moehl during his visit to Eswatini. It was a great experience and Stefan's drone was a real 'crowd pleaser' in many remote rural villages.
The Guardian UK journalist Saeed Kamali Dehghan published this story on the Frazer Solar Hot Water Station project in Eswatini, on 16 April 2021.
In this well written piece, Saeed picked up on the personal story of Registered Nurse Lindiwe Magongo who hasn't had hot water at any of the clinics she has worked at in her 25 year career. She now uses the Hot Water Station, amongst other more standard uses, to make cups of tea. This is most definitely a uniquely English take on the Project.
