Summary

Help us build a 10 unit sanitation facility for this community project. Our zero discharge sanitation systems require no water or chemicals and will enhance users personal hygiene standards.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

This project provides critical medical, childcare, education, skills development and sanitation facilities to a community where few have access to clean water, electricity or basic social services. The projects original sanitation system is beyond repair and is polluting the nearby river and underground water supply. Home to 25 orphans it also operates a school for 67 children and a skills development center for 25 adults. Its clinic provides care for several hundred patients a month.

How will this project solve this problem?

Include a school and children’s shelter. Each child gets breakfast, lunch and fruit before they go home, for most this will be the only food they get. It operates a 20-bed Aids hospice and the only registered TB clinic and HIV/AIDS in the area.

Potential Long Term Impact

This sanitation system will prevent further pollution, reduce the gastro intestinal disease levels in the area and significantly enhance the comfort and personal hygiene of the underprivileged currently served by the Refilwe Community Project.
