Soap and Water - June 2012 Project Update

We are making small, but life-saving strides in  our mission to eradicate water-borne diseases in Congo. In the last 2 months, we have been able to:

  • Reach 2 more primary schools in the South-Kivu Province and educates 122 children
  • Teach 66 parents, including young mothers about basic hygiene and how to avoid cholera and typhoid fever
  • Distribute re-hydration packets in 3 villages and one local dispensary

We are in the process of organizing a fundraiser for a new Solar Water Purification Device (WATALYS). Overall, the difficult road and transportation conditions are making it challenging for our team to reach the thousands more who could benefit from the Consortium Congo Development's efforts. If you know of any organization that can donate means of transportation such as cars or trucks, or assist us with filling a shipping container with donated supplies, please do not hesitate to contact us and spread the word!

In the meantime, thank you for your commitment to making the world a better and healthier place one child at a time.

Your generosity, efforts, and support are greatly appreciated!
