Give a family or community the gift of safe water. Clean water is an essential for a healthy life. Help provide a household with safe water for drinking, washing and watering vegetables.
These gifts give a family or community the gift of safe water and/or sanitation, and could contribute towards a new borehole or water system, or improved sanitation for a village. Many projects include training to ensure changes are sustainable and long-term.
Don’t forget to wash your hands! The simple act of hand washing can dramatically reduce the spread of disease and improve the health of a community. Tearfund’s partner Oasis Mozambique has been teaching women involved in their care groups how to make their own tippy taps from jerry cans, enabling people to wash their hands. The care groups also learn important hygiene, health and nutrition messages, which they share with their communities.
“I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink.” Matthew 25:35
