Healthcare Project in Kenya

We’re partnering with World Vision to accelerate the access to clean and safe drinking in vulnerable communities, within World Vision East African WaSH Programmes in Kenya.

World Vision

World Vision is a non-profit, Christian, relief, advocacy, and development organisation. It is committed to improving the well-being of children, families, and communities, with networks in Kenya, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Tanzania, South Sudan and Somalia. It does this by setting up sustainable development projects in education, health, child protection, food security, economic empowerment, as well as Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WaSH).

The Cost of Unsafe Drinking Water in Kenya

In developing countries where 80% of illnesses are due to poor water and sanitation, the lack of clean drinking water directly contributes to the spread of diseases like dysentery, typhoid fever, cholera, and more. In Kenya, poor water quality and sanitation is a leading cause of these illnesses. Without the means for medical care and treatment, it quickly becomes a deadly and debilitating problem throughout the country. In fact, according to the CDC, one of the easiest ways to control the outbreak and spread of illnesses like cholera is by improving safe water and sanitation solutions.
