Hospitals & Villages don't have access to clean water
Beneficiaries: 100's of Rural Villages
Lack of access to clean, safe water in communities in Uganda, India, Nepal, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Malawi causes people to travel at least 2km every day to collect drinking water. This unsafe water causes high incidence of preventable water-borne diseases and preventable illnesses.
Solution: Drilling, hand digging or refurbishing existing wells and installing hand pumps centrally located and accessible to most community households, schools and health care facilities to alleviate walking long distances to collect water.
Cost per Well: From US$2,000
Donations over $2 are tax deductible
80% of illness in developing countries is linked to poor water and sanitation conditions.
Every dollar spent will impact a large number of people.
500 to 2,000 people on average per village are impacted.
Often rural Health Centres serve many rural villages impacting a large broader community with populations of 30,000 to 40,000 people.
Completion time is 4 - 6 weeks on average for a village or health centre water supply.
