Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
It is estimated that 842,000 people die each year from diseases caused by unclean drinking water, inadequate sanitation, and poor hygiene habits. The tragedy is that the majority of these are children in developing countries. HOPESCHILD INTERNATIONAL is providing clean drinking water, coupled with health and hygiene education, as perhaps the most effective measure we can take in preventing infectious disease.
To date, we in a co-op effort with our contributors have raised $2,550 dollars , in conjunction with the Ugandan Water Project and have distributed 54 water filtration systems to Nalagugu, Africa.
Help us reach our continued goal of providing clean, life giving water, to developing countries in a more permanent way. We are implementing Project Dig as a means to fund the drilling of wells to offer a more permanent solution to battle infections diseases.
