WELLWATER partners WITH A LOCAL AID-FOUNDATION ON THE GROUND TO FULFIL THE THREE-PRONG PLAN: HYGIENE EDUCATION, BUILDING OF WELLS AND TOILETS.
the need: clean water
In this region of Nigeria, drinking water is still collected from streams and by digging into the sand.
This lack of infrastructure, accompanied by poor hygiene and sanitation practices, allows water-borne disease like Cholera, Hepatitis and Typhoid to spread quickly, causing sickness and disease.
the solution: three-prong plan
The community will be educated on the importance of sanitation practices. This will help decrease the spread of water-borne diseases. We will also train sanitation experts who will continue to teach the community the importance of hygiene practices.
Currently, women walk long distances to collect water from rivers, causing physical strain. The wells will be installed at the heart of the community, protecting their physical health and giving them more time to spend with their families.
Due to increased sanitary awareness and proper facilities, there will be a reduction in illness and the spreading of diseases. Mortality rates among children are expected to drastically decrease and medical expenditure therefore greatly reduced.
