Summary

Venezuela is ill-prepared to cope with COVID-19 pandemic. Ensuring access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and food security are essential elements to the pandemic's response. 82% of Venezuelans do not have access to regular supply of clean drinking water. By equipping care homes and soup-kitchens with WASH (soap, water tanks, water purification tablets and filters), we will help mitigate COVID-19 transmission and ensure food safety for 20,000 low-income families in 12 states.

Challenge

Most Venezuelans do not have access to regular supply of drinking water. More than 4.3M do not have access to WASH (Water Sanitation and Hygiene). Without clean and safe water it is difficult for care homes and soup kitchens to maintain hygiene standards to run their operations.These centers are ill-equipped to mitigate the transmission of COVID-19 and other preventable diseases. Furthermore, without the continued operability of these centers many vulnerable children are at risk of malnutrition.

Solution

WASH equipment is indispensable for the continued operability of soup-kitchens and care-homes to mitigate the transmission of COVID-19 and and other preventable diseases. We will equip 175 soup-kitchens, nutritional recovery centers, and care homes with water purification tablets and filters, water tanks and soap. We will also conduct training for caregivers and community volunteers to ensure proper use of equipment and WASH protocols.

Long-Term Impact

This project will improve sanitation amongst children and their carers, thus preventing the transmission of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. We will use our local partner NGOs' premises, logistics, distribution chain, and teams to impact more than 15,000 children with our program. This public health intervention goes beyond the prevention and mitigation of current pandemic, and once established it will improve the overall hygiene and health of many communities in Venezuela.
