The solar-powered, mechanized water system at the Kelloum Bawa Health Clinic is now complete! There is clean, running water in all three rooms—the examining room, the treatment room, and delivery room-- as well as hand-washing stations that allow access to safe water by simply turning on a tap. Women who are about to give birth no longer have the difficult burden of carrying water for their deliveries.
The people who live in the nearby village of Kelloum Bawa also have access to clean running water at a tap stand in the village. This means that the women and girls of Kelloum Bawa no longer have to spend hours every day walking for water that is often contaminated.
Now, more than ever, it’s critical that healthcare facilities have access to safe water. That’s why we’re committed to raising another $50,000 for a third health clinic solar-powered, mechanized water system, which I hope you’ll support. As always, 100% of your donation will go to saving lives in the poorest country in the world!
