Water and Sanitation

Every year approximately 297,000 children under five die every year from diarrhoeal diseases due to poor sanitation, poor hygiene, or unsafe drinking water and 2.2 billion people lack access to safely managed drinking water services (UNICEF 2019).

We make sure that all the schools and clinics we help build are installed with clean water facilities.
