In January 2015, we met Florence. With seven children running around, she told us that she is constantly taking them to the doctor because they are sick. This is expensive and she was frustrated that so much of their income was going towards taking care of these wholly preventable diseases.
Florence participated in WaterSchool’s training program and within three months things were starting to look very different around her homestead.
“After learning a lot about water and sanitation from WaterSchool, I constructed a bathing shelter, a tippy-tap for hand washing, and started to purify my family’s drinking water in the sun,” she explains. “Today, my children are happy and healthy. They no longer struggle with typhoid and diarrhea.”
The impact your support has made on Florence extends far beyond good health. “Because of what we have learned, my children are no longer going to the doctor,” Florence says with a smile. “I save a lot more money each month which I re-invest in my small business.”
Thank you for investing in people like Florence with your recent donation to WaterSchool. With the gift of clean water, you are changing lives.
