Clean Water

Drilling boreholes.

As of July 2017 we have drilled four boreholes to provide clean accessible water to three villages and a school in Uganda.

Mosquito nets

saving lives

Malaria is a mosquito-borne infectious disease of humans and other animals. Malaria causes symptoms that typically include fever and headache, which in severe cases can progress to coma or death. Disease transmission can be reduced by preventing mosquito bites through distribution of mosquito nets and insect repellents, or with mosquito-control measures such as spraying insecticides and draining standing water. The World Health Organization has estimated that in 2010, there were 219 million documented cases of malaria. That year, between 660,000 and 1.2 million people died from the disease, many of whom were children in Africa. The actual number of deaths is not known with certainty, as accurate data is unavailable in many rural areas, and many cases are undocumented. Malaria is commonly associated with poverty and may also be a major hindrance to economic development. - Wikipedia

 

We have distributed hundreds of insecticide treated mosquito nets that not only keep mosquitoes away but kill them on contact with the net. This is a major importance as sickness can keep children from school and adults away from work, becoming costly and financially draining on individuals and families who need constant treatment.
