Improving sanitation to keep people healthy and safe
According to the World Health Organization, nearly 1 in 3 people worldwide lack access to improved sanitation. Sanitation is an equally important, and complementary, use of water. Water sources are often polluted with feces. Contaminated water and poor sanitation are linked to transmission of diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid, and polio. It is estimated that 842,000 people die each year as a result of unsafe drinking-water, sanitation, and hand-hygiene. A lack of proper sanitation services not only breeds disease, it can rob people of their basic human dignity.
Hope for Healing is working alongside other charitable organizations to educate about the importance of proper sanitation and providing funds to improve sanitation in developing countries. 100% of your donation goes towards these worthy causes.
