In collaboration with the Non-Governmental Organisation OXFAM, Samansco embarked on a project to supply water to the people of Marinoha. Marinoha is located in Matabeleland province of Zimbabwe, a characteristically dry province plagued by frequent water shortages. The Marinoha project was done in conjunction with other OXFAM projects in Ratanyana, Makuzeze and Ngulubeni, all located in Matabeleland.

Samansco installed a new solar piped water supply system using a Lorentz solar pump that provides up to 50,000litres of water per day. The distribution of water from the tanks travels underground to various taps located in the communities
