March 2013 Update

Dear donors,

What has happened in the last 3 months? Well, we continue to carry out our mission to eradicate water-borne diseases in Congo:

  •  We have delivered soap and educated 15 families on safe water practices, and we are planning on reaching 50 more in the coming weeks.
  • Additionally, we organized a successful education session for a group of 31 local teachers and parents in the South-Kivu province of the Democratic Republic of Congo, covering the basics of water safety and disease prevention, and treatment. The session specifically consisted of local health professionals explaining how one can get sick from untreated water, cholera and typhoid prevention, and how to mix the prefect sugar-salt solution to prevent dehydration. Take a look at a picture of parents and teachers below.

We are still striving to reach the amount we need continue the project on a larger scale, so if you know of any organization that can fund projects, collaborate with us, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for continuing to spread the word to friends and family.

Your generosity, efforts, and support are greatly appreciated!
