A message from the community

We write to thank you for the building of a public toilet in our Kudna Primary Health Care Centre. It will make life easier for the staff and patients instead of going to the bush whenever we need to relieve ourselves. This will help to prevent the spread of diseases in the community. Thank you and God bless Lifewater for this great donation. 

  -- Salihu Sanda, Health Care Centre Leader

Some community details (provided by our in-country partners)

"Hospitals and clinics without safe water and basic hygiene and sanitation services are a potential death trap for pregnant mothers, newborns, and children," warns Kelly Ann Naylor, UNICEF's Director of WASH and Climate, Environment, Energy, and Disaster Risk Reduction. "Every year, around 670,000 newborns lose their lives to sepsis (infection). This is a travesty — even more so as their deaths are preventable."

The Kudna Primary Health Care Centre had no toilets. Staff and patients were forced to wander into the bush when they needed to relieve themselves. When seasonal rains came, the excrement lying around would travel everywhere -- causing a variety of potentially deadly diseases including cholera. Also, when people relieve themselves outdoors, they seldom wash their hands afterward, which leads to even more diarrheal diseases.

 To halt the spread of unnecessary illness in the community, Lifewater donors enabled us to build public toilets in the Kudna Primary Health Care Centre -- knowing that proper sanitation and hygiene are essential to living a healthy and respectable life.



Every $1 you give provides a child with safe water for a year!
