Our mothers are a welcome part of our training
Dear Supporters, friends and Family of Serendipity Healthcare Foundation,
In tribute to our campaign for this years World Water Day theme; Human Right to Water and ensuring that our State government fulfills its promise; we embarked on a training for the women of Amarzaya, Gadan Tudun Fulani where even our elderly mothers were not left out on the training on water management and informing them of their right to secure clean drinking water from their local government council and also a discussion with the chairman on how far they had gone in keeping to their promise.
Hajia Dije a widow told us in our feedback report and I quote verbatim in the local Hausa language; "Ai ni ban taba tsamani cewa ruwa tsaftacewa dole karamar hukuma ce za su ba mu ba, amma yanzu na sani". (Transalation - I never knew that providing water for us in our community is our right but now I know).
Water Jugs were then distributed to the women where they were taught on keeping these jugs clean at all times; how to filter their drinking water using water guard and general hygiene practices
We then proceeded to the local government council where we had a discuss on the promise they made with our organisation a year ago on fulfilling the basic human right to water in rural communities.
However, we need your support to do more trainings, give water filtration (water guard), water containers to these women as survey we carried out shows that out of 15 households only 5 households have separate drinking jugs from the ones they use for other purposes and thus calling upon you especially on the 13th of May (bonus day) to donate to our cause as GlobalGiving will match any funds up to $1,000 that is you can donate any funds between $25 up to $1000 and get it matched guaranteed just click on our project and support our work on 13th of May.
