In partnership with local, provincial and national organizations, Freeport-McMoRan’s Tenke Fungurume Mining operation provides clean water and sanitation to more than 185,000 community members in the Democratic Republic of Congo. This program consists of five complementary projects that maintain a clean water distribution and drainage system, provide health and hygiene education, build local capacity for pit latrines, hand-washing stations and waste disposal sites and engages community participants to manage the water supply system.
