improving health

Research shows that while substantive progress has been made towards improving access to basic health care around the world, many countries and sub-Saharan Africa in particularly still faces difficult challenges in providing decent health care.

Since 2009, we have been supporting local communities to improve access to basic health care for women and children, and in particular, to reduce the number of under-five deaths and maternal morbidity and mortality rates.

We Work with Local Partners to Improve the Health of Children and Women by:

  • Increasing Access to Clean Water.
  • Delivering of Effective Sanitation Through Latrines and Hygiene Education.
  • Preventing and Providing Treatment for Malaria and other Communicable Diseases.
  • Increasing Local Access to Health Care Professionals.
  • Creating Awareness and Providing Support for HIV/AIDS Patients.

We invite you to take a look at some the ways that we’re helping to increase access to health care for vulnerable children and women.

Increasing Access to Clean Water

Whether it’s a Well, Bore Hole, BioSand Filter and Rainwater Harvesting System, we give rural communities access to clear drinking water sources. In every water project that we fund, we ensure for sustainability by establishing local Water Committees to help keep water flowing for years to come.

Tackling Under–Five and Maternal Mortality

Since June 2010, we have distributed over 70,035 insecticide treated nets across rural communities in Sub-Saharan Africa. Together with our Effective Sanitation and Hygiene Education programs, these interventions have led to a decrease in the prevalence of malaria related diseases and an increase in effective sanitation and proper hygiene behaviors for poor communities.

Delivering of Effective Sanitation Through Latrines and Hygiene Education

Better hygiene and access to basic sanitation saves millions of lives. We help provide latrines and basic sanitation facilities to rural communities, particularly for displaced people during humanitarian crisis.

We provide hygiene training to ensure personal hygiene, health, dignity and well-being. We also enhance the technical capacity of local partners, thus ensuring effective operation and maintenance of the facilities after the end of every project.
