Luanda - At least USD 2.4 million financed by the Government of the United States of America through its Agency for International Development (USAID), with the objective of improving the water and sanitation situation of four municipalities in the province of Benguela.

According to a document from the US embassy in Luanda, the funding, which involves the Angolan Government, is aimed at capturing water in the municipality of Benguela, Cubal, Ganda and Chongoroi, under the initiative "Water for All "of the Angolan government.
